Garden Tour to Benefit Yarmouth Port Library - The Condon Garden
- Dates: July 10, 2023
- Location: Yarmouth Port
- Time: 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
The Condons were commercial hydrangea propagators and growers for forty years, and as one might suspect, this is a very hydrangea-centric site. They continue to expand their collections, which now include over 300 hydrangeas in the ground, with additional container specimens to emphasize this growing technique. H. macrophylla is the dominant species, along with collections of H. paniculata and H. quercifolia cultivars. More recently, a number of H. serrata and H. arborescens plants have been added to the mix. The Condons are also serious veggie growers, utilizing raised beds to produce a wide range of favorites. Fruit is in the mix, too, with berries and figs (always hopeful), along with a recent peach and plum orchard.
Established in 1866, and the only Yarmouth library north of Route 28, the Yarmouth Port Library is a public but privately-financed library with full CLAMS access. Mainly serving the nearby northside community, the library welcomes all visitors.
The proceeds from the garden tour will benefit the Yarmouth Port Library. Admission:$5 per garden. Rain or Shine.
