    Garden #1 Chapman’s Garden - E. Falmouth
    Change is a constant in life and in our garden. Reworking and redesigning our garden beds allows us the opportunity to add new hydrangeas and plants of all kinds. While archways and espaliers remain to anchor the garden there are dramatic changes in our plantings every year. A special feature for this year only is the addition of a tropical garden. This along with our latest venture of cultivated conifers in homemade containers add extra interest and surprise to your garden experience. Regardless of the scale of your garden and the depth of your experience be prepared to be inspired with practical ideas that you can take away and apply elsewhere. Our garden has been featured in Falmouth Living, Cape Cod Home, and Fine Gardening magazines. Open for Tours: Saturday, July 9 & Wednesday, July 13

    Garden #2 Bowker’s Garden - East Sandwich
    Mary and Roger – both Master Gardeners – purchased their historic former dairy farm in 2001 and have spent the last two decades rescuing 15 acres from invasive plants. On four acres they have created garden rooms around a gazebo and pergola dotted with statuary. They have over 50 hydrangeas naturalized throughout the garden as well as in pots and urns, matching the cultivars to the microclimates on the property. The site also contains a formal herb garden, an orchard, beehives and peaceful sitting areas. The Bowker’s especially enjoy their extensive vegetable patch growing 40 types of tomatoes, figs, and other favorites.
