Summer Garden Tours 2018

 

 

Ah Spring!  Always happily embraced after the seemingly endless winter. But for we gardeners, the cold is soon forgotten when we see what awaits just outside the door.

Perhaps this year you will try a few perennials that you never considered before.  Or take a chance with lavender.  Or find the perfect (deer resistant) rose. If you attended our lecture series this past winter, you will be well prepared to tackle any or all of the above!

I think you’ll agree this summer’s line up of garden visits is up to our usual high standards.  We have a lovely mix of intimate secret gardens and ambitious park like landscapes.  We are truly privileged to be able to visit these lovely spaces.  Heartfelt thanks to all of you opening your gardens to us. I hope to see you all there!

In addition, we have a special treat in store on July 7th. Susan and Chick Hill will be hosting a picnic lunch in their wonderful garden in West Brome.

I would like to thank Rory McWilliams for creating the maps for us again this year.  Much appreciated!  Also, a big thank you to Guy Côté who continues to do a great job of translating all of the Garden Club’s documents.  Merci!

Here’s to a warm and happy gardening summer.
