2022 Garden Walk & Flower Show was a success! Thanks to all who attended.
Each year on one weekend in early June The Bloomington Garden Club organizes its annual Summer Garden Walk, open to the public with the gracious support of local garden owners who prepare and make their gardens available. Gardens, open on specified hours on both Saturday and Sunday, are especially chosen for their plant selection, design, and appeal.
Descriptions of 2022 Gardens:
A garden showcasing a variety of selected plants, including redbuds, hibiscus, iris, and daylilies, provides continuous seasonal color as well as wonder at the uniqueness of related plants. Garden design is key, encouraging these garden owners to provide intriguing views throughout their garden. Though these plants are well-known in Indiana, some varieties are surprising.
Fewer gardening chores as well as protection from wildlife were essential to these garden owners as they shielded and updated their large garden to include a variety of well-placed low maintenance flowering shrubs accompanied by small accent planting areas for sun and shade perennials. This garden is both appealing and relaxing.
If you enjoy a garden with lots of style and variety, you’ll love the curved informal beds adjacent to more formal displays in this very special inner-city garden. As you wander, note the unique seating areas as well as plant selection and placement. Prepare to take photographs and make lists!
Even within a city, it is possible to have a lovely, year-around meadow both as a lawn and a garden. Careful planning and selection of perennial grasses and flowers for color, texture, and height as well as a good understanding of site conditions are essentials prior to undertaking this project. The result is captivating and unusual!
A pocket-size garden has its own charm, especially when owners are both inventive and creative. Come enjoy an intriguing mixture of plants, including a kitchen garden as well as an impressive assortment of well-paired perennials and shrubs. This garden’s ambience is inspiring.
