    If you love abundant flowers and a large kitchen garden, you’ll enjoy walking this landscape created by Dan (a scientist) and C.L. (the author of eight gardening books). Walk though the cutting garden and trial beds up top. See the solar-heated seed-starting shed, and the rustic fence Dan built out of locust. Sit in the shade of the grape arbor, note the abundant use of containers around the house, and enjoy the perennial beds and vegetable garden. Ask about the magical stump plantings, the rain garden, and blueberry patch. See many hydrangeas (mostly labeled), an assortment of groundcovers, flowering perennials, and a wide selection of shrubs and trees. This garden is located on one of Cape Cod’s lovely lakes.

    Accessibility: Difficult – mulched paths, steep drive, uneven ground. 

    Open for tours: July 16 & July 17

    The proceeds from the garden tour will benefit the Branstable Education Foundation. Admission:$5 per garden. Rain or Shine.
