We are a private Garden

open to the public.

I have always thought of the garden as a gift that must be shared; that has never been more true. Realizing how many folks are either confined by circumstance or choice, the necessity for sharing a garden such as this one becomes quickly obvious. How fortunate to be able to live in the middle of a garden and to have such an outlet at one’s doorstep! The garden is large enough and varied enough in layout for a great many people to remain socially distant while still enjoying the gardens, if that is a concern.

Even though available by appointment to groups, the garden is open to the public without reservations, daily during daylight hours. Come and visit, walk around, enjoy the plants and the garden, sit and unwind for awhile. Benches are placed throughout the garden for your convenience.

Please understand if we don’t have a lot of time to accompany you or chat much, as spring is always a particularly busy time here, and this is especially true this year, with many hundreds of new plants going in the ground and several major projects underway.  We will share as much time as we can.
