CANCELLED 2020 Through the Garden Gate Series #1: Sullenberger Garden
May 9 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The 1st garden tour in our “Through the Garden Gate” series has been cancelled due to COVID-19 social distancing.
The 19th annual series of “Through the Garden Gate” presents a series of opportunities to visit local gardens. Visit the Sullenberger Garden at 2314 Chapel Spring Lane, Free Union, VA 22940 hosted by the Piedmont Master Gardeners and the Monticello Garden Club. Gine Sullenberger developed the 5+ acre property to reflect her interests as a plants-woman and her love of structure. American boxwoods enclose the entrance courtyard and the walled, formal kitchen garden showcases many boxwood varieties along with herbs and flowers. A well-designed deer fence protects a “working” garden where you will see cut flowers, berries, tomatoes, and more. A moss-covered path meanders through a woodland garden to stunning views. Also highlighted is a native dogwood thought to be one of the largest in Albemarle county. Admission is $5 and can be paid at the garden.
