Open Days, Edibles
Eastward boarding and training stable has been established for fifteen years, and its gardens have evolved. We now have some lovely, maturing specimen trees, Our dominant feature is five large mixed borders each dedicated to a color theme with abundant bloom throughout the season. In addition we have a 200-foot-long garden in the shade of our indoor arena featuring shade-loving plants, including many native woodland species. It is matched by a semi-formal sunny bed with an eclectic mixture of shrubs, perennials, and annual bedding plants. As a botanist, I have incorporated as wide a variety of different species as possible, in the various environments I can provide. A good number of specimen trees acquired over the last fifteen years are scattered throughout all the gardens, which total more than fifteen separate garden areas. A newer feature is a large enclosed decorative/practical vegetable and herb garden mainly planted in raised beds and containers which we are intensively cultivating for local markets.
There is a walking tour through the entire garden at 11:30 a.m. and again at 1:30 p.m. for anyone interested in detailed information about the plants and their culture.
