Reciprocal Admissions
We honor American Horticultural Society’s Reciprocal Admission Program, which allows free admission to Wellfield for the named card holder(s), or, in the case of a household type of membership, two free admissions. Only one reciprocal membership will be honored per visit. Please call us if you have specific questions regarding the reciprocal program, as details may vary from your home institution.

Your Wellfield membership grants you free admission (and in some cases, other perks!) to over 360 public gardens. For more information on reciprocity, visit AHS Reciprocal Gardens. For more information on membership at Wellfield, click HERE.
