Bartlett’s Spring Tour of Private Gardens
The Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens’ Spring Garden Tour will take place on Tuesday, June 7, showcasing five private gardens, in addition to the Arboretum’s themed gardens. The Tour’s destinations were selected for their vegetable gardens, creative use of space, and beauty. UConn Master Gardeners will be on hand at each garden to answer questions on horticulture and gardening practices, and there will be plein air artists and musicians in the gardens. Participants may also enjoy a tented luncheon on the beautiful Arboretum grounds and a Patron Party on Sunday, June 5. This will be an evening of catered hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and a Broadway Cabaret performance by Christina Connors. Patron Party tickets include complimentary admission to the Tour and Luncheon.
