Upcoming Garden Tours!
It's almost that time of the year again - time for the annual Seaside Garden Tour in Chester. It's the one tour that I never miss and this year it will take place on Saturday, July 17th from noon to 4 pm (rain or shine).. I've been to the tour when it's a gorgeous summer day and other times when it's raining as heavily as a monsoon! Either way, it's a blast.. great gardens and great people.. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 the day of the event (the tickets include a $5 luncheon coupon). Tickets are available at the Chester Visitor Information Centre and at the Chester Pharmasave. You can find out more by calling the Visitor Information Centre at (902) 275-4616.
Also, coming up this weekend - on July 11th - the Basin Gardeners are putting on the 10th Annual Strawberry Tea & Garden Tour! Tickets are just $10 in advance, or $12 at the gate. The event runs from noon to 4 pm and begins at the host garden - the lovely property owned by Nancy Guest, located at 26 Marriotts Cove Road. For more information, please call Myra at (902) 273-2000 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
