Lancaster gardeners to share creations

Lancaster will show off a number of not-so-secret gardens next week as the annual Lancaster Garden Walk kicks off on Friday, July 18.

Gardeners from all over town have been planting and pruning in preparation for the event, which will run through Sunday, July 20. According to Richard Groblewski, the walk chairman, between 30 and 40 homes will participate in the free event.

While some of the homes are those of returning gardeners, this year has also seen a number of new individuals sign up, looking to share their work with the community.

Each year the event features many types of gardens, from those with fountains and other water elements, to ones that span large backyards in multi-garden sections.

The walk this year will also feature the work of some local artists, displayed in conjunction with the natural beauty of the gardens.

This year’s walk, marking the 11th anniversary of the event, will kick off at 8:45 p.m. Friday, July 18, with eight gardens being shown until 11 p.m. the first day.

The event will also run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, July 19 and 20, with all participating gardens included. Guides for the walk will be available the week prior to the event at Mimi’s Central Perk Cafe, 24 Central Ave.; Petals to Please, 5780 Broadway; and Two Chicks and a Rooster, 732 Aurora St.
