The 2024 NOTL Horticultural Society Garden Tour mission is to showcase a wide selection of gardens in each of the NOTL villages and rural areas on Saturday, July 6th, 2024.
Tour attendees will be invited to visit and enjoy these beautiful gardens at their leisure throughout the day.
To make this annual tour possible, we need your participation and support.
Our committee is aware that there are many beautiful and interesting gardens throughout all parts of our town. If you have a garden or know a family member, friend, or neighbour that has an interesting garden, that visitors would appreciate the chance to visit, please let us know or suggest they contact us to talk about this opportunity.
We are looking for all types of gardens – perennial, annual, organic, pollinator or butterfly, water garden, cottage, modern, small, or even vegetable gardens.
As you know, gardens are always a work in progress. Your garden does not have to be perfect or “done” – we’re looking for all types of “gardeners’ gardens” that our visitors can learn from and enjoy. You do not have to commit your entire garden to the tour – we can showcase just the front or the back garden or even a garden at the side of your home.
Please contact us to discuss this opportunity in more detail!
