Garden Tour 2019
Ten beautiful Grimsby gardens for garden enthusiasts and devotees to enjoy. We are proud to feature the Winner of Canada’s Backyard Contest 2018. Along with this above-escarpment delight are gardens with butterfly and bee plantings and with native plants. In every garden are numerous varieties of interesting plants, trees and perennials. Grimsby has a moderate climate and fertile soil, so tree specimens are significant here.
Whether you are an avid gardener or someone with an affection for flowers and plants, this is a special tour. Consider planning ahead for lunch at Casa Toscana in the middle of town, where a special-priced menu for those who RSVP is in the works. Look for the latest in Ladies' fashions at the newly opened Roseanna Boutique, located a couple of doors away from Casa Toscana. If you enjoy exploring unique gift shops, visit Objects to Desire, one of our Bronze sponsors. You will find many one-of-a-kind specialty pieces, jewellery and artwork. Make sure you visit our Gold sponsor Cole’s Florist and Garden Centre where discounts on the large selection of plants and accessories await garden tour participants. Consider a side trip to the Painted Ladies in Grimsby Beach, in close proximity to some of our tour gardens.
Rain or Shine. No dogs allowed.
Tickets $20.00 cash available at Cocoon and Cole’s, 147 Main Street East.
