Have you bought your tickets for the Summit County Master Gardeners' popular Tour of Gardens?
This year's tour is 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 21, and includes seven gardens. Patron tickets come with a bonus: breakfast at a secret garden that's not open to the other tourgoers.
No matter which kind of ticket you buy, every tourgoer gets to shop at the Posie Shoppe, which will be brimming with plants that can turn your own yard into a show-stopper.
Patron tickets are $60, $80 and $100 and can be purchased online.
General-admission tickets are $20 and are available online as well as these locations:
-- Dayton Nursery and Garden Center, 3459 S. Cleveland Massillon Rd., Norton.
-- Donzell’s Garden Center, 937 Waterloo Rd., Akron.
-- Graf Growers Garden Center, 1015 White Pond Drive, Copley Township.
-- Suncrest Gardens, 5157 Akron-Cleveland Road, Boston Township.
(Full disclosure: I'm a master gardener volunteer. I'll be working at the Posie Shoppe, so stop by and say hi.)
