73rd Annual Tour Posponed!

In support of efforts to safeguard public health and help control the spread of the Coronavirus, Wilmington Garden Day (May 2) and the pre-event, Evening in the Garden (Apr 30), have been postponed until further notice. Please note that at this time of uncertainty we are postponing, not cancelling, this much-anticipated annual event. Gardens will continue to grow, and the board and participating gardeners look forward to your visit when current restrictions are relaxed. We will provide updates, and you can always check our website and Facebook page for the latest news.

Summer 2019

Garden Tour

No winter lasts forever. No spring skips its turn.

Dear Friends,

It's a privilege to serve an organization that turns strangers into friends through a mutual love of nature and gardening, while helping long-established beneficiaries serve the needs of children and individuals who struggle in our community. Wind your way through a purposeful Japanese garden, a lush and shadowy woodland, a formal English garden, or, marvel at innovative container vegetable plantings. This and more, can be found on the 2020 Wilmington Garden Day Tour, a beloved tradition, and one of our area's first celebrations of Spring. Your fresh ideas. Your volunteer time. Your generosity. These gifts make each year a success. After a long, cold winter, I look forward to enjoying Spring with you!
