This is the quarter-century mark (arghhhh!) for Hamilton Spectator Open Garden Week. We’re hoping for a record-breaking show of area gardens that will be open to visitors during the 12-day run.
The dates this year are June 30 to July 1, which allows for two full weekends, including the long weekend attached to the July 1 holiday.
There are some exciting things happening for this Silver Anniversary edition: The Flamborough Horticultural Society (which includes some of this area’s great gardeners) is planning on participating with a special event (details to come) and the Mount Hamilton Horticultural Society (which includes many others of this area’s great gardeners) is marking its anniversary with several special events that including urging its members to open their gardens.
