GARDEN TOUR: Open Space & Sweeping Beds, a Learning from Great Gardens event by TheDCH

This open, innovative exclusive private garden nestled in the rolling hills of Delaware’s beautiful chateau country is tended by two of the region’s premier horticulture experts.

A meadow-esque landscape inhabits the lower portion of the property, and features sweeps of perennials, grasses, and sunflowers are accented with cannas, bananas and other tropicals.

This garden is a wonderful exercise in problems solving: plant combinations focus on texture, size and value, to maximize visual interest for one of the owners, who is color-blind. Drive on your own to this rare opportunity. Location and directions to this rain-or-shine outing are provided upon registration. Refreshments provided.

One of the best ways to learn about gardening is to directly experience the gardens of other plant lovers. Learning from Great Gardens is a special series that treats guests to once-in-a-lifetime strolls through some of the area’s most superb private gardens, guided by the gardeners who created them.  Brandywine Cottage is the first in the spring series on April 30. The spring series concludes with Urban Collector’s Dream on June 25. 


Members: $10; Non-Members: $15
