Has anyone been to Bedrock Gardens in Lee, N.H? It appears to be an extraordinary "fine art garden" with some mighty fine gardens as well.\

No I haven't, but I've wanted to go since I first read about them, probably in an early People, Places, and Plants magazine. It just hasn't worked out so far, perhaps because I didn't ever know when they had the garden open, but maybe this coming summer. They don't yet have their open garden days up on the website for 2011, but at least I know where to look now. I think last time I checked several years ago they didn't yet have a website, but now they do.

Thanks for the reminder, Marie.

Thanks for providing the link.
Wouldn't this be a great new england garden web fieldtrip in '11?

RE: Bedrock Gardens

June 11th
July 9th
September 10
All run from 10am to 4pm.

Anyone up for a field trip or two this growing season?

RE: Bedrock Gardens

I've been, and it's *wonderful*. In fact I'm taking a club there this summer. I highly recommend it both for the art and the gardens.

RE: Bedrock Gardens

May 14th (tomorrow) is the first open garden day at Bedrock Garden,s and I am tentatively planning on going, though don't know for sure yet. Anyone else interested on such short notice in the middle of busy gardening season?

RE: Bedrock Gardens

I ended up going yesterday and will probably go again at least once this year. Lovely garden, fun sculpture (though out of my price range!), and absolutely no blackflies, which for me is an absolute pleasure in and of itself at this time of year. I probably spent 2 or 2 1/2 hours there and enjoyed every minute. The owners/gardeners were there as were a bunch of volunteers. It is a large enough property that it didn't feel crowded even though there were probably more than 100 folks there when I was. There were many interesting plants to enjoy and a few for purchase in pots. Great examples of shade gardens, rock garden, shrub beds and mixed borders. A pond with an arched bridge along with various other water features, an Asian garden, along with many seating areas, all made by the owners: chairs from pieces of old farm implements, pergolas from old skylights . . . I could go on. Instead I'll suggest that if you are within an hour or so drive, it's well worth a visit. Free, though donations were accepted as well.
