Events: 30th annual Spring Garden Tour

30th annual Spring Garden Tour

The tour, sponsored by the Master Gardeners of Hamilton County, will take place Saturday, June 10, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday, June 11, 1-5 p.m. Featuring seven public and private gardens located in Chattanooga, Hixson and East Brainerd, the tour benefits educational programs sponsored by the Master Gardeners and the Chattanooga Area Food Bank. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased on the day of the event at any of the gardens. For more information, visit www.mghc.org/30th-annual-spring-garden-tour.

Patsy Boles, Spring Garden Tour chair and long-time master gardener, says, “We join our gardeners in welcoming everyone to celebrate spring with a leisurely stroll among trees, shrubs, perennials, herbs and native wildflowers. These gardens demonstrate how sculpture, water features and stonework can be combined with various plantings to create beautiful and relaxing landscapes.”

This year, the Spring Garden Tour includes five private gardens: two in East Brainerd, two in Hixson and one in downtown Chattanooga. Chattanooga School for Liberal Arts, which has a Master Gardener-sponsored program, is also on the tour, as are the award-winning gardens at the BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee headquarters.
