CANCELLED 2020 Through the Garden Gate Series #4: Southfield
September 12 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The 19th annual series of “Through the Garden Gate” presents a series of opportunities to visit local gardens. Come visit Southfield at 1650 Garth Gate Lane, Charlottesville, 22901 hosted by the Piedmont Master Gardeners and Albemarle Garden Club. When the Kramers moved to Southfield in 1999, they fell in love with the house, the view, and the privacy. Over time they have added extensive gardens, including an array of woodland plants set among meandering paths and mature trees. The walled parterre garden is home to old-fashioned roses, boxwoods, mosses, perennials and tropicals. Pots are everywhere, a testament to Cathy’s love of succulents and vibrant color. A recently created pollinator border supports Cathy’s beekeeping endeavors. Admission is $5 and can be paid at the garden.
