Brome Lake Garden Club is planning its summer garden tour events and is inviting new members to join them.

Brome Lake Garden Club

Don’t let the name of the club fool you! We are active year around and have just completed a busy and interesting winter series of lectures. Experts in their fields have discussed invasive plants, the newest varieties of quality perennials, hardy and interesting roses for our climate zone, and the uses of peony roots in sought-after cosmetics. 

Now we move on to our summer garden tour events. In late June, we will be visiting beautiful gardens in Sutton and Brome. One is a large peaceful oasis with quiet paths, fruit trees and an expansive kitchen garden, and another with beautiful perennial beds, stables and more.

In July, our Club will visit interesting properties on rural Centre Road in West Brome, including a charming cottage with large perennial plantings, a working farm with walkabouts and an eye-catching meandering roadside perennial border, and a secluded property with a lovely mountain view from a private lake. In early August, we meander in the West and East Bolton region, visiting a hideaway on the Missisquoi River with many colourful perennials.

Summer activities draw to a close with our ever popular and informal Annual General Meeting, an al fresco lunch with refreshments to be held on the first Saturday following Labour Day. 

Garden visits are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., take place rain or shine, and members are welcome to bring guests for a $10 fee. In addition to the scheduled tours, there is always the possibility of pop-up visits of which members are given an email notice at least one week prior. To join our Club, visit www./ or check out our Facebook page.
