6 Exquisite Gardens to Visit!

The Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens is a unique 93 acre natural preserve that is open to all visitors free of charge. Given its easily accessible location in Stamford, CT, it is part of a regional community that includes not only Fairfield County and other parts of Connecticut but Westchester and the Hudson Valley as well.  

This year’s Garden Tour is about experiencing the amazing variety of gardens in our broader community. The expanded range of venues includes three in Stamford, one in New Canaan and two in Chappaqua, as well as the Bartlett Arboretum home grounds. Each venue offers something unique and different -- small, mid-size or large, there are things to catch every person’s eye or fancy and provide gardeners of all skill levels with ideas that they can embrace and use.

These gardens provide very different views of how each owner may envision what becomes an important part of their personal space, whether it be a calm spa-like oasis reminiscent of the Italian countryside or a unique, whimsical set of garden vignettes accessed via series of intricately winding pathways. There are large properties that include meditation gardens, dwarf conifers, vegetable gardens and beautiful Connecticut woodlands; and ponds and streams that reflect areas that are both wild and cultivated.

A lovely English style home has extensive peony gardens, wildflower meadows and greenhouses with a collection of orchids and other subtropical and tropical plants.   Elsewhere a garden lover can take time to wander through tall trees and plentiful gardens with masses of flowering shrubs. The Bartlett Arboretum & Garden itself highlights the best of what Connecticut’s native landscape has to offer.
The 2017 tour has something that is sure to delight and inspire everyone who joins us.  We look forward to welcoming  you on  June 11 and 12.
