Springfield tour includes 11 gardens
May 16, 2014
SPRINGFIELD - A carefully planned loop of eleven gardens make up the day-long Spring Garden Tour sponsored by the Master Gardeners of Greene County and the Springfield Watergarden Society. The event will be held on Saturday, June 7, 2014, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Tickets are available now for $5 each and may be purchased in the Master Gardener Hotline Room at the Springfield-Greene County Botanical Center, 2400 S. Scenic Ave., or at the following businesses: Garden Adventures, Maschino’s, Wickman Gardens and Schaffitzel’s Greenhouse. Tickets on the day of the tour are $7 each.

Here’s a run-down of the tour route, according to Master Gardener and Springfield Watergarden Society president Pat Ware:

“You can visit any garden on the tour at any time, in any order, during the designated times,” said Ware, “but the suggested route has been carefully driven and studied from many angles to make the most efficient use of time and miles. Directions are garden to garden in a large loop, so the last garden gives directions back to the first garden.”

Call (417) 881-8909 for more information about this tour, including specific addresses to paid participants. Funds raised at the event will help the Springfield Watergarden Society promote water gardening and the Master Gardeners create and maintain the Greene County public gardens and staff the popular gardening hotline, (417) 881-8909, Ext. 320.
