Opening Day at Ladew Gardens

Monday, April 1st, 2013

Ladew Gardens opens today, Monday, April 1, 2013, for the start of it’s 42nd season delighting visitors from near and far! Named one of the top 5 gardens in North America in 2012, Ladew is a must-see.  The topiary is always amazing and the spring flowers are blossoming.

Upcoming events at Ladew include My Lady’s Manor Steeplechase Races (April 13th) and the Garden Festival (May 4th).  Throughout the spring and summer, attend a Garden Series lecture, bring the kids for Storytime in the Garden, or share a fun-filled time with the entire family at a Sunday evening summer concert.

Just a 30-minute drive separates Ladew’s lovely topiaries and Gramercy Mansion‘s landscaped gardens and Koinonia organic farm (the oldest organic farm in Maryland).  A true retreat for garden lovers… book your B&B stay at Gramercy and wander the gardens and farm at your leisure, then hop in the car for a scenic drive to Ladew Gardens.  Enjoy two of the most beautiful gardens in Baltimore county!

Hope to see you tiptoeing among the tulips this spring!
