The Greeley Garden Tour is coming up this weekend on June 22nd, from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. Our Weld County Extension Demonstration Garden is on the tour this year. There are still tickets available.
Master Gardeners were out today fluffing and puffing up the garden to get it ready for the tour. We took down the roping, did some deadheading, weed pulling, pulled all the old flags and tags out and added a couple of plants. The garden is looking spectacular if we do say so ourselves.
We planned the garden so we would have blooms all season long. The Spring bulbs are gone now but the next round of bloomers have started. The Columbine, Coral Bells and Salvia are beautiful right now. The Ice Plants have spread out in luscious carpets of green and are just getting ready to bloom. The plants that are not in bloom yet all have very interesting textures to them. As you look through the photos take note of the different shapes, sizes, textures and colors of the leaves. As you plan your garden, what textures and colors would you like in your garden?
The Garden In A Box gardens along the front sidewalk are really filling in and many plants are in bloom.
To get the full effect, please come visit us on the tour this weekend. For the gardens on the tour this year, and ticket information, please visit: https://greeleygardentour.org
