We will also have many varieties of tomatoes, (both slicers and cherry), vegetables and herbs, all grown from seed by Garden Club members.

My Hillside Garden

The most interesting part of the garden is on the hill at the back of the house. The hill is divided by a waterfall in the middle of the garden. Each side is planted with a variety of perennials, evergreens, and a flowering tree. A Kousa Dogwood is on one side and a Black Gum is on the other side. A variety of small Junipers, as well as flowering perennials, cover the hillside. One of the corner beds is made up of Roses and the other is planted with mostly a collection of Sedums as well as a number of Heathers. The garden continues on both sides of the house with a variety of perennials including Astilbes, Hostas, and Heucheras. Leading down to the street you see a variety of Hydrangeas.

A Welcome Home

Step over the Town line from Sandwich to delight and relax at this colorful gem of a property on 2.5 acres located in rural Marston’s Mills. Owners have worked since 2017 to provide a rich and enticing habitat for butterflies, bees, birds and other fauna. Let the abundance of native and old favorite perennial and pollinator plants and bushes, which live in harmony with berries, fruit trees and vegetables, enchant and soothe you as you stroll the property. For the more adventurous, paths through the woods are there for a short walk or a bit longer walk downhill to the bogs on Bog Road. A wonderful yard to explore and experience.

The Bowker Horticultural Society

 Two Master Gardeners purchased their historic former dairy farm in 2001 and have spent the last 19 years rescuing 15 acres from invasive plants. On four acres they have created a serene landscape of garden rooms around a gazebo and pergola, dotted with statuary and many hydrangeas, a formal herb garden, and an orchard. They also enjoy their extensive vegetable patch where he, an avowed carnivore, and she, an enthusiastic grower of all things green and edible, happily work side by side.
