Kirkwood Gardens Sale May 31

HOLDERNESS — The annual Kirkwood Gardens Day featuring a vast plant sale will be held at Kirkwood Gardens at Squam Lakes Natural Science Center on Saturday, May 31 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

All proceeds from Kirkwood Gardens Day benefit the gardens which were established in 1995 in honor of "Sunny" Grace Kirkwood, who served on the Science Center's Board of Trustees for six years. Sunny designed a one-acre garden on the grounds of the historic Holderness Inn to include both shade and sun beds planted with a wide variety of trees, shrubs, ferns, and flowers adapted to the northern New England climate. Today, Kirkwood Gardens is a beautiful and peaceful, location to enjoy the many plants that are attractive to birds, bees, and butterflies.

Both the upper and lower lawns at Kirkwood Gardens on Route 3 in Holderness will host this annual garden sale that offers hardy New England grown perennials and herbs; expert gardening opinions and advice; craft vendors; home baked goods; hot and cold beverages; and more.

Kirkwood Gardens are free and open to the public daily. They are supported by a strong group of volunteers who keep the gardens looking their best all season long. Help support Kirkwood Gardens and be inspired, rain or shine, on Kirkwood Gardens Day. This event is generously sponsored by Belknap Landscape Company in Gilford.
