FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SPRINGFIELD GARDEN CLUB INVITES THE PUBLIC ON A
BUS TRIP TO THE NEW YORK BOTANICAL GARDEN
SPRINGFIELD, MA — The Springfield Garden Club will host a bus trip to the New York Botanical Garden on Wednesday, April 27, 2022. The bus will leave Forest Park at 7:30 AM and will leave the NY Botanical Garden at 3:30 PM. Ticket prices are $63 for SGC members and $75 for non-members. The cost of the trip includes the bus trip and admission to the garden.
At that time in the spring, ephemerals and early blooming trees will make a breathtaking show amid and along the garden paths, waterfalls, and wetlands. The 1890s-vintage Haupt Conservatory will be filled with rare plants and orchids. The "greening up" will have begun at the Rose, Alpine Rock, and Herb Gardens. And, the always lovely 37-acre Conifer Collection is not to be missed. Of course, walking among the trunks of hundreds of century old trees in the Old-Growth Forest among the massive American beech, cherry, birch, tulip, and white ash evokes a sense of history and reverence. Spring delights will fill the Ladies' Border, The Irwin Perennial Garden, the Home Gardening Center, the Maureen K. Chilton Azalea Garden, and the Native Plant Garden.
The tour is self-guided and lunch is the responsibility of the attendee. Registration is on a first come first served basis and complete payment is due at time of registration.
