The Chapel Hill Garden Club, now in its 77th year, has sponsored a biennial Chapel Hill Spring Garden Tour since 1996. The tour is a self-guided tour of ten distinguished gardens in The Oaks and Meadowmont to be held April 12, 10-4pm and April 13, 12-4pm. Also on tour, the North Carolina Botanical Garden will host a native plant and herb sale as well as exhibits and refreshments. Guides will be posted in every garden and educational specialists will host demonstrations in selected gardens.
This tour features a wonderland of unique plants and architectural details. Visitors will enjoy a variety of styles and sizes of gardens, including a woodland “rescue garden” featuring rare native plants with over 700 trilliums; a garden nationally certified as a Backyard Wildlife Habitat; and the superb gardens of the DuBose House at Meadowmont, newly restored and open for the first time to the public in honor of this occasion.
See waterfalls and rock-lined pools, intimate gardens with expansive views beyond their borders; a charming orangerie; fountains of ceramic and bronze; elegant and whimsical garden sculptures; a geometically laid-out vegetable garden; and colorful plantings with surprising combinations.
Proceeds will benefit construction of NCBG's "green" Visitor Education Center and the educational and community projects of the Chapel Hill Garden Club.
