IF you live in or around New York’s Hudson Valley (or if you are willing to take a plane, a train, or the Queen Elizabeth II to get here), I hope you’ll stop by for one of my 2014 “Open Days.” Open Days benefit the amazing work of the Garden Conservancy. Here’s a sneak-peak at some of the gardens on the tour:
Open Day #1. Saturday, May 10, 10 AM – 4 PM.
Open Day #2. Saturday, August 16, 10 AM – 4 PM.
For tickets, contact the Garden Conservancy.
Here are just some of the gardens you will see:
The Rose Garden. Would you believe this formal, boxwood- and yew-framed garden was previously an asphalt parking lot? ‘Tis true. How I achieved the garden through blood, sweat, and tears.
The Serpentine Garden. Have a steep hill on your property? Maybe you’d like to do what I did, and create a garden there.
The Kitchen Garden. The twelve raised beds in this garden serve as my “living supermarket.” The design details.
The Woodland Garden. My favorite place when the weather turns hot and humid. It is filled with Primulas, Polemonium caeruleum, Astilbe, and oodles and oodles of ferns. How I designed this shady retreat.
So…who’s going to attend one (or both!) of these events? I’d love to meet you.
