About the Book
Visiting gardens at their prime in early summer is always a joy. We hope you will join us on Sunday, June 3, 2007, 10:00 a.m. to 4 p.m., to walk “down the garden path” of six unique Wine Country gardens to benefit our community education programs. Each garden is owned and lovingly tended by a Napa County Master Gardener. These gardens, three in St. Helena and three in Calistoga, have been chosen to highlight, promote and demonstrate individual design styles and good gardening practices with everything from roses to perennials, vegetables to vineyards, orchards to herbs and annuals. Each is full of ideas to take home and try in your garden.
The gardens are large and small, urban and country, casual and meticulous. They are owned and cared for by Master Gardeners, whose imaginative approach to their own gardens has resulted in healthy and productive plantings. Master Gardeners will be available in each garden, as docents, to highlight features of interest. There will be information available from the University of California Cooperative Extension on specific gardening practices emphasized in each garden.
You will be dazzled by beautiful gardens and enticed by our Plant Market, Garden Book Sale and Critter Houses, where beautiful plants and unusual items and will be available for purchase. It promises to be a full day of sunshine, surprises, garden delights and practical information. Come spend a Sunday in St. Helena and Calistoga smelling the flowers.
