28th Annual Grand Forks Garden Tour This Weekend

Posted: Updated:

  It's estimated that 82-million American households take part in some type of gardening. This weekend, offers a great event for all you gardening lovers out there. It's the 28th annual, Grand Forks Garden Tour.

  If you like peeking in other people's backyards, you'll love the Garden Tour. You'll be able  to take a look at some of the best gardens in Greater Grand Forks.

Anne Smith, GF Garden Tour: "We have 6 yards, plus the Myra Museum yards and grounds. This is the Ford yard here. It's a small yard, but it's taken all the elements you see in large yards and made it work for this smaller venue."

  Smith says the tour gives you the opportunity to come up with some new ideas for your own backyard. And she says there are a lot of very inexpensive options.

Anne Smith: "Yes, this homeowner has built her yard on a budget and she's been very creative with the things she's done. Those bottle trees can be made very inexpensively."

  Some folks like Mary Lou Liddy have combined a vegetable garden into their display of backyard plants.

Mary Lou Liddy, Grand Forks: "Well, I love hostas and this year they're very nice as you can see. And my ferns went crazy. And I like Morning Glories. All the Morning Glories I have are volunteer. I never planted them."

  Your ticket to the Garden Tour also lets you take advantage of a special plant sale. And all proceeds g  o back to local libraries and gardening projects around town,  like the rock garden at University Park.

  The Grand Forks Garden Tour runs this Saturday from 10am to 4pm and Sunday Noon to 4 pm.

  Tickets are $10 and available at the Myra Museum on Belmont Road.

 The Plant Doctor will also be on hand to answer any of your gardening questions.
