Garden Education Center of Greenwich holds annual Grandiflora Garden Tour

The Garden Education Center will hold their annual Grandiflora Garden Tour on Sunday, June 12, from 10-4, rain or shine. Tours are self-guided.

Two of the gardens are in-town properties within walking distance of each other, the first providing a private sanctuary rich in texture, form and flowering color with subtle fragrance to attract pollinators. The other with welcoming front garden and private rear garden of contrasting styles with art wall, linear fire feature and spa. These two properties inspire the trend towards compact planting and care.

Contrast them with the next two properties. A majestic mid country estate whose architecture mirrors the elaborate, formal and classically based Colonial Revival “Country House” style with long views, garden ornaments, hedged rooms softened by flowering plants, parterre, spectacular mounded evergreens and climbing roses. These three gardens showcase the genius of Doyle Herman Design Associates.

The fourth is a glorious baronial estate on the western side of town, set on a hillside with ranging views over surrounding countryside, sweeping driveways, a gorgeous home infused with the passion of the owners for the best in quality and style. Masterfully designed gardens surround the beautiful pool, pool house and patios.

In Greenwich back country sits a magnificent horse farm with immaculate stables, ingenious transport facilities, riding trails and the only indoor covered ring in Greenwich. Majestic trees have been transplanted to frame the spectacular new home, with ornamental shrubs and the owner’s very personal vegetable garden. Many apple trees line the driveway, all designed with meticulous detail by Conte & Conte, LLC. An incredibly beautiful place of wonder.

Benefactors and patrons will be treated to a breakfast at the guesthouse on the 13 acre estate in the Golden Triangle. Gardens, designed by Charles Stick extend throughout and may be explored at one’s leisure.
