New Hampshire and Vermont Open Days

Congratulations to all of the gardeners who opened their gardens this past weekend for The Garden Conservancy's Open Days event that happened in New Hampshire and Vermont!

Preparing gardens for a high-profile national event such as this is no small feat but all of the gardens looked spectacular.  Every season, the Garden Conservancy gives the public a chance to visit some of the best private gardens in the country. This year, sixteen gardens represented New Hampshire and Vermont, showcasing the high quality of horticultural talent in this region of the country.  In addition, visitors had the opportunity to visit public gardens in the area such as the town gardens in Peterborough, NH and The Fells in Newbury, NH.

Visitors to the eight beautiful private gardens that participated this past weekend came from many distant locations including Georgia, Texas, New York, Illinois, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.

For a glimpse of the wonderful gardens that were open this past weekend, see the photos below.  For more information on the Garden Conservancy, click here.
