Rain or shine, ‘Tour des Fleurs’ will spotlight Wareham’s finest gardens

Jul 12, 2024

Event Date: 

Saturday, July 13, 2024 - 9:00am to 3:00pm

Seven homes, seven gardens — countless plants, flowers and vegetables. 

On Saturday, July 13 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., seven Wareham homes will be open to the green-thumbed public — rain or shine. 

Four homes are in one association neighborhood, and all are uniquely different from one another. They use perennials, complimentary annuals and even include vegetable gardening.

A fifth home is close by, and the gardens twist and turn down to the water’s edge. The sixth property spills into Buzzard’s Bay with topiary plantings, shrubbery, succulents and arrangements.

The final home has a cranberry bog view and hostas, evergreens, daylilies and horticulture.

Photography will be available for purchase at several locations, and one home will have the owner’s art on display.

Advance tickets are $35 and can be purchased on the Wareham Garden Club’s website. Online purchases close at 8 p.m. on Friday, July 12. Tickets can be purchased on the day of the tour for $40 at the registration desk at the Wareham Free Library, 59 Marion Road.

Everyone will be given a map of the included homes at the library. Also at the library, garden viewers will be able to participate in a silent auction, with gift certificates to garden centers, nautical paintings, a day at a pool with lunch and a day on a boat with lunch on offer.

Proceeds from the Wareham Garden Club’s events help fund its community projects including civic beautification, monthly garden therapy at the Wareham Council on Aging and educational programs. They also help fund the club’s scholarship program, which awards grants to Wareham residents who are planning to further their education with a focus on horticulture, agriculture, the environment, earth sciences, biology or conservation.
