Blue Moon Gardens Schedules Spring Open House Event On April 26
The beauty of spring and the love of gardening take center stage at the Spring Open House at Blue Moon Gardens on April 26.
A walk through the gardens finds the peace of the country and the joy of creating beautiful spaces with plants. The display gardens are in full bloom, the nursery is full of herbs, vegetable plants, perennials, shrubs and flowers.
Blue Moon Gardens also has a large collection of fairy gardens and can help visitors make their own to enjoy at home. The gift shop carries unique gift items, handmade jewelry, fashion accessories, candles, soaps and more.
Learn about cooking with fresh, local or home-grown ingredients with Justin Boswell, owner and chef of Railway Cafe in Athens. Be inspired by Steven Chamblee, avid gardener and chief horticulturist for Chandor Gardens in Weatherford. At noon, a “Container Smack-down” commences, with several plant professionals vying for the title of “Master Potter” as they create mixed pots on the spot.
Visitors can also buy one-of-a-kind daylilies or fresh produce from local growers, and enjoy herbal treats and drinks while strolling through the gardens and greenhouses.
All programs and events during the Spring Open House are free and everyone is invited to attend. Blue Moon Gardens is a retail garden center located 4.5 miles east of Edom on FM 279. Check their website for more details at bluemoongardens.com, or call 903.852.3897.
