Our gardens are created by landscape designers, garden centers and nurseries, farms, florists, schools, and non-profit organizations to delight attendees and introduce themselves and their services.  Gardens and displays feature dozens of examples of plants, methods and materials to increase the beauty, the bountiful harvest and the ecological friendliness of our gardens and outdoor spaces.  The gardens are judged just prior to the opening of the show by prestigious members of the New England horticultural community and awarded prizes based on creativity, use of plants and materials, color and fragrance, and ecological concepts among other criteria. Awards are posted at each garden. See if you agree!

Garden Photography & Botanical Art

And There’s More!
