    The Falmouth Garden Club is pleased to feature three stunning gardens in this year’s Cape Cod Hydrangeas Festival.  Each is owned and maintained by a member of the Falmouth Garden Club and in their own way, a hidden gem which is rarely if ever on tour.    

    Garden #1 Seasonally Evolving Garden  - Address to be annouced in June
    Transformation of this Ballymeade blank-slate property began in 2014, with the goal of creating a garden that transitions with the seasons. Against a backdrop of conservation land and native species, you will find hardscaped stone paths, a patio deck and fountain, lattice trellises, various ornamental pieces and a flagpole to honor veteran owner and Marine.  Trees include a ginkgo, weeping Norway spruce, Japanese Snowball, Steward and 18 different Japanese Maples. Shrubs include Hydrangeas, Rhodedendrons, Fothergilla, Inkberry, dogwoods, Japanese cedar and Japanese Holly, many varieties of boxwood, andromeda aeuonuymus. Shade plants include hostas, astilbe, ferns, and grasses. Open for tours: Friday, July 8 and Saturday, July 9.  

     

    Garden #2 Award-Winning, 360-Degree Gardens - Address to be annouced in June
    This third-generation property features award-winning English-inspired front, side and back gardens, each with their own unique flavor and focus. The front yard's boxwood-bordered cottage garden has been featured in several garden magazines and overflows with roses, astilbes, feverfew, and primrose.  The side garden is home to a boat-house-turned-tiny-guest-cottage that is surrounded by woodland gardens, meandering paths and a cozy firepit and features hostas, ferns, smoke bush, heuchera, oakleaf and climbing hydrangea. The backyard kitchen garden provides beauty and bounty in the form of flowers, vegetables, fruits and herbs. And to help with all this gardening is a honeybee hive - these busy ladies live just beyond the kitchen garden.  For more, follow designer on Instagram at gardenonthecape. Open for tours: Friday, July 8 and Saturday, July 9. 

     

    Garden #3 Private Niche Designed for Entertaining and Wildlife - Address to be annouced in June
    Tucked away off a main road, you would never know the house, which dates back to at least 1930, and its surrounding gardens were there. Designed with entertaining in mind, the property boasts a large fountain in front and hardscaping by Billy Bourne, with outdoor lighting and a firepit out back.  The current owners, who purchased the property three years ago, have been busy updating older plant stock with newer varietals and building shaded beds suited to their passion for reading and enjoying the wildlife that wanders by throughout the year. Plantings include a host of sedums, astilbe, rhodedendrons, along with climbing clematis and ivy. Open for tours: Friday, July 8 and Saturday, July 9.

    The proceeds from the garden tours will benefit Falmouth Garden Club . Admission is $5 per garden tour. RAIN or SHINE.
