Gardens are reaching their summertime prime and the moment for garden tours is now.

Garden tours offer an opportunity for expert gardeners and novices alike to take in the beauty of area gardens and to converse with hosts. For some, this will be a chance to learn new methods and philosophies about applied gardening, while others might want to simply enjoy the sights and smells.
