Two Open Gardens in Searsport
July 17 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm$5
Two gardens will be featured on the July 17 Belfast Garden Club’s Open Garden Day. Both are in Searsport, a 5-minute walk apart, at 15 Water St. and 5 Elm St. They will be open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, rain or shine.
Jim Rose rebuilt his garden at 15 Water St. a year and a half ago, after repositioning his driveway, removing most of the lawn, adding a deck, and finishing renovations to his 185-year-old house.
Originally from England, Janet Williams, whose garden is at 5 Elm St., was inspired by English cottage gardens, but her densely planted garden beds and borders feature native flowers and interesting shrubs, many of which came from Carol’s Collectibles in Swanville, as well as perennials, flowering vines on trellises, vegetables, and herbs.
To protect Open Garden visitors, volunteers, and homeowners during the current COVID situation, all will be asked to wear face masks and to maintain appropriate physical distancing while at the gardens. Hand sanitizer and masks will be available for those who cannot bring their own.
