Historic Garden Week returns – The Suffolk News-Herald – Suffolk News-Herald

Historic Garden Week is coming to Suffolk on April 17, with its headquarters based at Vintage Tavern, 1900 Governors Pointe Drive.

For one week each April, the Historic Garden Week takes place across various Virginia areas April 17-24. Participants will tour private landscapes and floral arrangements created by Garden Club of Virginia members to enhance tour properties.

For the Suffolk area, tours will occur from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to visit six North Suffolk properties in Governor’s Pointe.

“Each home we visit has its own unique and cool outdoor space,” said Kim Butler, a tour chair for Portsmouth, Suffolk and Franklin. “With water located nearby, it really makes for beautiful scenery.”

There will be a garden party on a veranda, a golf party on a miniature golf course and a pool party by a swimming pool. Three of the featured locations are on the water by the Nansemond River. The homes are located on Governors Pointe Drive, Wentworth Court and Torrington Circle. This tour will cover some uneven ground, so participants are encouraged to wear appropriate flat-heeled shoes.

Not only will folks be able to look at the beautiful landscapes, but they will be able to get in on the gardening as well. There will be a chance to do various gardening activities, including flower demonstrations and outdoor container gardening.

Artists from the Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts’ Plein Air Society will be attending to
