Event description

Description

You are cordially invited to a self-guided tour of 5 beautiful and interesting local gardens. Each garden will be hosted by the Nichols Garden Club members, who will be serving an assortment of complimentary refreshments.

Enjoy lush greens, mature plantings, fragrant flowers, and a leisurely stroll through the homeowners’ carefully created garden oasis.

We work hard each year to make sure that our Secret Garden Tour includes a variety of interesting gardens so don't miss this year's selection!

New Ticket Pickup Location:
The tour begins at the Trumbull Historical Society, located at 1856 Huntington Turnpike. It starts at 4pm and ends at dusk.



Proceeds fund the Jean Demchak Horsey memorial scholarship fund.

We present this scholarship each year to a Trumbull High School senior who will be studying the horticultural sciences. The Nichols Garden Club created this annual scholarship in honor of our late founder, Jean Demchak Horsey.



FAQs

Is there a dress code?

Tour guests are encouraged to dress comfortably for walking through the gardens. There may be sloped, mulched, or pebbled paths available to explore. Sturdy, comfortable footwear is encouraged.

Should I eat dinner first?

Our garden club members proudly provide delicious light refreshments, keeping hunger quiet while you stroll through the greenery. You may prefer to eat dinner afterward.

Is there a rain date?

In forecasts of light rain, we will endeavor to continue the Secret Garden Tour and encourage you to dress appropriately for the weather. Some past tour guests have described it as "almost magical" to view our gardens during a light, brief rainfall. Due to the difficulty of rescheduling all the helpful volunteers needed to make this day possible, at this time a rain date is not feasible.

For dangerous weather conditions, or with thunder and lightning, the tour will be canceled, and notifications will be posted on our website, Facebook page, and local news and radio stations.
