    Eastham is once again hosting one of the most popular garden tours of Hydrangea Fest. This tour is literally a breath of fresh air after a long winter. We have five fabulous gardens for you and continue with the chance to play our ‘Garden Quest’- a bonus available to all who purchase the Tour Ticket. This includes a drawing to win a prize hydrangea for those who participate in the Quest. Information will be on your ticket.

    We are a modest community with huge amounts of colorful creativity. As in prior years, these amazing gardens are designed and maintained by the owners and they show how you can create a magic space which will become so much more than you ever imagined. This year we decided to feature a garden that is just one year old and two others which are three years old to demonstrate what is possible in a very short time. If you have recently moved or want quick results in expanding your current garden, we have ideas for you. In addition to the lovely gardens, you will find many extras on the tour. Homeowners, Master Gardeners and volunteers will be in the gardens to answer questions. Volunteers will talk about native species which are especially important as they are hardier and attract the most diverse species of wildlife including bees, birds and butterflies. And, of course, there will be plein air painters. The gardeners will show you what is possible with a little imagination and a wheelbarrow. And, by the way, garden tours are a nice way to introduce your children to nature and they will be admitted free. More details will be announced soon.
