Two Exciting Garden Tours Are Available in July
SIG Native Plants-Stoneleigh Garden Tour
July 14, 10:00am

 Stoneleigh is a magnificent estate, formerly the home of Rohm & Haas Co. founder Otto Haas and his family.  The gardens have developed over a century, with major naturalistic features designed by the Olmsted Bros and many majestic mature trees.  After the transition to a public garden, thousands of native trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants have been installed to create more wildlife habitat. Come see how this sensitive adaptation has progressed in a short time.

Plan to arrive at 10 AM, when the garden opens, so your tour will not be in the heat of the day.  Picnics are allowed, so please feel free to bring your lunch, sunscreen, wide brimmed hat, and comfortable walking shoes.   Admittance is free, but donations to Natural Lands are gratefully accepted.

Address: 1829 East County Line Road, Villanova, PA 19085.  Any questions about the tour, contact Margaret Moore at [email protected].

Pop-Up Event at Jerry Leube's garden
Saturday, July 21
10:00am-1:00pm

 

Jerry Leube has invited us to visit his garden and enjoy all that he has created. After taking classes at the Barnes, Temple Ambler and many others in the area he has built a wonderful haven of paths, tunnels and scenic spots. With Sun and Shade gardens all on a hillside. He has been interested in gardening most of his life and his passion just keeps exploding. 

Jerry will provide light refreshments, access to the bathroom and will gladly answer questions and chat about his garden as you stroll through. 

As the garden is on a corner and on a hillside parking can be a challenge. He suggests people park in front of the house and in the grass and gravel medial strip, or car pooling would be advisable.
