Plant Walks at Blithewold

Led by members of our talented professional horticultural staff, the introductory, easy-paced walks cover a variety of topics (see below). On each one you will enjoy learning about various plants, garden topics, habitats, and seasons at Blithewold. Your guide will introduce you to perhaps new-to-you gardening techniques, trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants as well. People of all ages and levels of gardening experience are welcome. Dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes that can get wet. Come to one, or join them all!
