Good morning everyone! It looks like the start to another beautiful day here in the heart of North Carolina. Perfect for a day of gardening or perhaps a stroll through the nursery here at Garden Supply. Or, why not a little of both? With all the wonderful new plants we have arriving daily, how can you help but want to get your garden on? I know I can’t resist.
If a stroll through the garden is right up your alley, then the Chapel Hill Spring Garden Tour, being held April17-18, is just the ticket. Presented by the Chapel Hill Garden Club, the tour includes 8 gardens in the Eastwood Lake area, as well as the NC Botanical Garden.
Since their first tour in 1996, over $100,000 in proceeds have been donated to the NC Botanical Garden. Their continued efforts help the Garden furnish their new Education Center, plant new landscapes, and provide additional programs for garden lovers of all ages. Tour proceeds also help fund the educational and community outreach projects of the club, including teaching elementary students with their Seeds Program, maintaining a planter on Franklin Street, and purchasing garden tools for new owners of Habitat for Humanity houses.
Now in their 79th year, the Chapel Hill Garden Club continues to be an integral part of the social fabric of our community. They have an open membership policy and welcome anyone interested in gardening or learning about gardening. For membership information and details about the garden tour, please visit their website.
We, at Garden Supply, are pleased to support the efforts of the Chapel Hill Garden Club and are thrilled to offer 2 free tickets to the upcoming garden tour. Simply upload your favorite Garden Supply photo to our Facebook page before April 15th to be entered in our random drawing. Winner will be announced at 12:00 pm.
Thanks so much for stopping by everyone! I’ll see you back here soon for more snippets from the garden.
