Garden Tours in Charlotte area?

I know about the Gardeners' Garden Tour sponsored by Wing Haven, but I'm wondering if there are any other tours in outlying areas taking place in May?

Mint Museum has their Home and Garden tour usually the last week in April, the Koi garden tour is in May-June. There will be a private garden open in Concord on June 8th, there are neighborhood walking tours usually of Elizabeth, and 4th Ward. The regional daylily convention will be here in June with bus tours of many local gardens. The Cemetery garden in Concord on Spring street is in bloom now. Have you been to Daniel Stowe? It is a must for anyone. There are also over 10 daylily farms/nurseries in a 1 1/2hour drive from Charlotte.

Thanks for that. I knew about the Mint Tour but apparently they've changed the name this year (and the "vision")and seem to be focusing on the homes much more than the gardens, if their website is accurate. Yes, Daniel Stowe is a real destination garden. I visited the new Orchid Conservatory in March, and it was amazing.

Concord Memorial Gardens that was mentioned above is absolutely beautiful right now. I've been going every few days and the changes over the last couple weeks have been really nice. It's on Spring Street in Concord, and free!

The River Hills community in Lake Wylie is having their annual Garden & House tour on April 24th, starting at 10am

Winghaven's garden tour is Mother's day weekend. It is a gardener's garden tour (not landscapers). The Koi club hosts a nice tour to local ponds.... Also a hidden gem is McGill Rose garden!
