    A Hydrangea Festival number one stop! A garden full of charm with a layout that understands display. Fondly known as the Hedge House, this garden is set in the quaint village of Sandwich. Dahlias of many shades, layers of morning glories, an old grapevine shading the pergola... Many different perennials and annuals will be blooming, as well as several examples of hydrangeas in shades of pink to blue to deep purple.
