Visit and tour the private garden of master designer and horticulture specialist, Louis Raymond. You may recall that Louis spoke at our May 2018 meeting and promised to invite us to visit his garden! Here are the details…
It’s all about explorations, whims, and manias during your extensive private garden tour with Louis! Within “only” a one-and-one-half acre space, few trees or shrubs grow free-range. Instead, hedges, Belgian fences, and espaliers create the narrowest-possible separators. Woodies are also trained ornamentally as pollards, coppices, portals, standards, pillars and topiary. All of this “horti-tecture” rises from beds crowded with perennials, annuals, and tender woodies. A horde of container plants crowds the grass and the paths leading to the focal spots at the ends of the vistas.
Enjoy a “Welcome Nibble & Sip” Homemade Picnic Style Luncheon: Classic Chicken Salad, Baked Penne with Sweet Italian Sausage, Hot Biscuits with Honey Butter and more.
Farm stop on the way home for “mums.”
Cost: $89 for members of CT Hort. Non-members please add $6.
