We've had a wonderful, albeit fast, 2019 in the gardens at Tryon Palace this year. Much of that is due to the support we receive from our visitors, volunteers and Foundation Supporters. This year, we've renovated and reopened the Kellenberger Garden, held two highly successful plant sales (THANKS TO YOU!), hosted many garden lectures and tours, celebrated pollinators (especially our largest crop of Monarch Butterflies in 10 years!), decorated an entire historic site, shared our love of plants with hundreds of school kids, planted over 22,000 summer annuals, bulbs, violas and snapdragons!!! It's been quite a year and we're looking forward to even more in 2020!
If you're already in the mood to start something for your new year's calendar, our 2020 garden lecture series kicks off, Saturday, January 11, with Tryon Palace Gardens and Greenhouse Manager Hadley Cheris presenting “Midwinter Musings from Summer Sightseeing: Design Visions from North Carolina and Mid-Atlantic Gardens.” This lecture enables your wanderlust while focusing on garden and plant design inspiration from Duke Gardens, JC Raulston Arboretum, Longwood Gardens, Morris Arboretum, US Botanic Garden and more. Learn how you can cultivate a new view in your own backyard, with plenty of time for spring plantings.
We are so very very grateful for all the ways you engage with us throughout the year and as part of that, we want to share a few of our favorite photos from the past year.
Wishing you a happy, healthy holiday season and looking forward to seeing you in 2020!
Hadley Cheris, Tryon Palace Gardens and Greenhouse Manager
