Historic Garden Week in VirginiaHistoric Garden Week celebrates its 85th anniversary in Virginia this year. Its roots go back to 1927, when a flower show organized by the Garden Club of Virginia raised $7,000 to save some of the trees planted by Thomas Jefferson on the lawn at Monticello.

Road Trips Gardeners are invited to take part in the many activities scheduled during the week, set for April 21 through 28, 2018, checking out not only gardens but also houses with more than 2,000 flower arrangements.

Both the tour schedule and tickets are available online.

The Garden Club of Virginia operates as a non-profit organization comprised of 47 member clubs and 3,400 volunteers. All proceeds from this event go toward the restoration and preservation of Virginia’s historic public gardens.
