img_3081For the last few years I’ve heavily publicized an “open garden” day at my display garden the first week of July, but this year work has been so demanding I’ve had no time to plan an event. Instead, I’m just posting this notice here and putting up a few local signs to let interested gardeners know that I’ll be on site at the garden from 9:00 AM until noon on Saturday, July 3, rain or shine.

This is the same garden that was featured in the May, 2010 issue of Horticulture magazine. Despite a few losses in the wake of last year’s water-soaked weather, the garden is looking good. A tad dry, but at least not mildewed! Daylilies, astilbes, various bee-balms and many other plants will be reaching their peak, so there’ll be no better time to see it all year.

If you find yourself in the vicinity of Sherman, CT on July 3, please take a moment to stop by. The garden is located next to the Sherman IGA market in the Sherman Green Marketplace on Rte. 39 North just north of Rizzo’s Garage and the firehouse currently under renovation. For more information, you may call (860) 350-3565 (not after 9:00 PM, please) or email me through my Contact form. I hope to see you there! ¬†Until then, here are a few photos from previous years to pique your interest.
