This year the Trade Secrets Garden tours were amazing private gardens that were so different with each showcasing a unique gardening perspective.
“Rockwood Farm speaks to the landscaper/designer owner’s affection for New England history.
Featuring a historic reproduction of an 1800s-era saltbox, this serviceable, sustainable and comfortable homestead has a relaxed and casual style complete with fruiting trees, a courtyard garden, edible and woodland gardens, a fieldstone terrace and so much more.”
Here is a sample of this gorgeous property that is obviously tended with loving care by its owners.
Then it was on to Kent and another beautiful property. The owners of Kent Greenhouse and Nursery have taken great care in making this property their own.
There was more than ample space there for loads of veggies! There were fruit trees and berry bushes and solar panels and of course a barn with horses!
The owners had a his and hers garden areas.
And of course what is a garden without gorgeous flowers!
Next week I will feature another garden on the Trade Secrets tour – the Georgian-style Twin Maples which features formal gardens, a woodland garden and wildflower meadows. Stay tuned. Here is a sneak:
Then onto Michael Trapp’s property in Cornwall Bridge and Bunny Williams and John Roselli’s Garden.
