Six residential gardens and the Woodland Public Garden will be featured in the 2015 edition of the Belmont Garden Club’s Garden Tour taking place on Saturday, June 13, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The fundraiser will showcase a few large gardens and also some small gardens, to show the creativity that can occur in less spacious areas.
One garden will have a display of shrub covers for winter plant protection as well as information on deer-deterrent products. The Woodland garden will have a demonstration and information on composting. Another garden will host refreshments for tour attendees.
The gardens belong to club members and also Belmont residents.
This fundraiser, held rain or shine, furthers the Club’s scholarship and community beautification efforts. The Club’s Community Planting committee works together with the Belmont’s Department of Public Works to maintain various sites throughout town including many traffic islands and deltas, the Town Hall, the Veteran’s War Memorial and the September 11th Memorial Garden located at the Wellington Station across from the stone railroad bridge on Concord Avenue.
Tickets are $25 in advance and may be purchased by calling Loretta at 617-484-4889. On the day of the tour, maps and tickets (at $30) will be available at the Flett Room in the Belmont Public Library, 336 Concord Ave, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
