11/14/2012 12:09:00 PM Garden Tour Friday & Saturday
The Lemon Bay Garden Club of Englewood will hold its annual Garden Tour on Fri & Sat Nov 16 & 17, 9am-3pm. Seven area gardens will be featured and ready for selfguided touring, selected for their beauty and diversity. Included will be the garden of club member Eileen Richards, pictured with bromeliads as tall as herself! Highlights include a garden full or orchids and bromeliads, a garden featuring low maintenance Florida natives and bird and butterfly attractors, an artist’s paradise and a garden belonging to a member of the Men’s Garden Club of Englewood. The ticket allows tour-goers to view gardens either or both days. Lunch, including Box Lunches, will be available at the Clubhouse either day for $8 and will be served 11:30am-1:30pm. There is also a plant sale of hundreds of locally grown plants along with knowledgeable gardeners on site to answer questions. A unique Craft Boutique at the Club House features many hand-crafted cards, garden and holiday items for sale including unique wreaths made of all natural materials. Club members will happily help non-gardeners and Northerners learn to be a Florida gardener – perhaps with their future garden on a featured tour! Tickets on sale at the LBGC Clubhouse, 480 Yale St, (corner Yale & Cedar downtown Ewd), various times and on the days of the Tour at clubhouse 9am-3pm. Ticket info 475•9713.
