2014 Wickford In Bloom – Saturday, June 28th




Historic Wickford will present Wickford in Bloom, a garden tour of twelve private and public gardensin Wickford on Saturday, June 28, 2014, rain or shine, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  This is a self-guided tour through the village that allows everyone to explore a unique collection of gardens.  Designs of the gardens vary—from cottage-inspired gardens, to small hidden gardens, to a Japanese inspired garden.

The 2014 garden tour will feature gardens on the properties of eighteenth and nineteenth century homes and buildings—some on the picturesque harbor and others on the tree-lined village streets, with each garden featuring a local artist on location painting.  

A renowned Rhode Island Landscape Architect will be on hand to answer questions.  A raffle will also be held featuring items including  a $1,200 gift certificate for a complete Master Garden plan donated by Wickford Collections, and a beautiful hand-made quilt by Mary Padbury.

Tickets may be purchased in advance for $25 at fine stores throughout the village, including:  The Book Garden, Blue Hydrangea, Beauty and the Bath,  Wickford Collections, all located in Wickford Village, and at the North Kingstown Chamber of Commerce.  Tickets may also be purchased for $30 on the day of the tour, Saturday, June 28, 2014, at Wickford Collections, located in Wickford Village at Brown and West Main Street.

Mark your calendar for Saturday, June 28th.  It will be a time to view beautiful gardens, visit with neighbors and friends, talk with talented artists and perhaps learn about new flowers for your own garden in this historic seaside village.

Best of all, your ticket purchase will help support community needs and historic preservation efforts of Historic Wickford and North Kingstown.

Don’t miss it.  The last garden tour was wonderful. Check it out.
