This summer, instead of a Secret Garden Tour, the library is very excited to announce a Secret Garden Talk & Tea with Don Avery, noted plantsman of Cadys Falls Nursery In Morrisville, VT. Don will give a talk on conifers and perennials at Xiaohong Liu and John Paden’s extensive gardens in East Orange, for the benefit of the Blake Memorial Library. $15 in advance, $20 on the day. Rain or shine. See below or call the Library for more info: (802) 439-5338.
Please note: There are no bathroom facilities at the garden.
1 pm: Garden Opens
2 pm: Talk and walkabout through the beautiful gardens of Xiaohong Liu and John Paden in East Orange, VT with Don Avery, noted plantsman and owner of Cadys Falls Nursery in Morrisville, VT followed by a delicious tea
Of special interest: rare conifers, MANY unusual perennial beds, flowery meadow walks, a hidden island water garden, unusual natural stone features
Be prepared for walking and some standing. Wear a garden hat!
We will mail a map with directions in early July. This will be your “ticket”, and will note the number of places purchased. You may go straight to the garden rather than coming to the library first, if you have bought your ticket and have the map.
Those who wish to buy a ticket on the day of the tour may buy them at the Library from 9am to 3pm, or at the garden in East Orange from 1pm. Call the library for directions.
