Featured gardens include a spectacular shade garden, a cottage garden with curb appeal, a beautifully landscaped bird-lovers’ garden, splendid outdoor living areas, gardens bursting with color, and informal mixed gardens with something for everyone. Some are created by the homeowner, some are professionally designed, but all are a welcome relief after a long, cold winter.

The Garden Tour grew out of the twin desires to celebrate the private gardens of Holliston residents and to raise money to develop and maintain public spaces. In this, Holliston Garden Club’s 80th year, the Club is maintaining several traffic islands, planting trees, maintaining the gardens at the Holliston library, weeding, pruning and helping the town stay beautiful. Those interested in membership can go to www.hollistongardenclub.org.

Tickets for the Garden Tour are $15 each and are available at Coffee Haven, Outpost Farm, and Salon D.  On tour dates, tickets will be sold at the Gazebo near CVS Pharmacy on Central Street. In addition, interested parties can mail a self-addressed stamped envelope prior to May 10, 2013 with a check for the tickets to HGC Garden Tour, c/o 117 Westfield Drive, Holliston, MA 01746.
