Sales at U.S. seed company W. Atlee Burpee & Co rose to their highest in the company’s 144-year history when the country locked down last March. Overseas, Russian demand for seed rose by over 20 percent, while Britain’s Royal Horticultural Society reported five times the previous rate of advice-seeking inquiries. These people are on to something. Here in Virginia, Historic Garden Week, an annual tour of outstanding private and public gardens hosted by the Garden Club of Virginia and its 48 member clubs, has soothed the souls and inspired the imaginations of household gardeners since 1927, along with those of kitchen and dining room table bouquet arrangers. A signature feature of the tour is its abundance of creative floral arrangements—an estimated 1,000 this year—highlighting seasonal native Virginia plants cut from Garden Club of Virginia members’ own gardens. This year’s local tour, presented by Albemarle Garden Club on Sunday, April 18, will focus on smaller than usual properties located within the city of Charlottesville, making it even more stimulating for avid gardeners with modest plots and immoderate dreams. Each belongs to a member of one of the area’s three Garden Clubs, Albemarle, Charlottesville, and Rivanna. The smaller garden sizes, says Michele Silver, a Master Gardener and Co-Chair for the local 2021 tour, “is something we’re really excited about, because they’re really gardener’s gardens. If you’re a plant connoisseur or just a tree and flower lover, you’ll love this.” Let’s look at each.

Lewis Mountain Neighborhood “To stroll through this cheerful garden,” says the 2021 guidebook, “is like walking through the pages of a wellcurated flower catalog.” Since certified horticulturist and professional gardener Leslie Harris moved here from Connecticut with her husband Jeff in 2014, she has transformed a plot of ivy, weeds and neglected trees into a garden deserving of a visitor’s attention. Today the carefully massed flower plantings—orange cannas and elephant ears alongside native blue wild hyacinths, for example—make for bright and bold color fields throughout the growing season. Beds and borders of shrubs, annuals and perennials surround the house. In front, tour-goers are greeted by large beds of blooming perennials. Walking trails along the back lead through wooded areas with over 150 rhododendron and azaleas, but many uncommon species as well, including glossy-leaved Fatsia japonica and Edgeworthia chrysantha. Other delights include an herb garden, a small kitchen garden, and a knot garden composed of boxwood which Harris propagated in her Connecticut garden and transplanted here. Not only is this garden lovely, it offers a lesson in urban landscaping as well. A former ugly drainage ditch bisecting the back yard is now a stone-lined stream and fishpond, fed by a recirculating pump. Ten compost bins are tucked away in the corners of the property for recycling garden waste, and a cistern and irrigation system catch storm water runoff from the

street. Pea gravel covers a plot of land that was formerly a basketball court. Like the other gardens on this year’s tour, this outdoor haven will inspire those interested in learning about designing outdoor spaces.

Park Street Specimen trees tower over shady beds of blooming shrubs and perennials at Mary and Dick Howard’s home on Park Street. The 100-year-old, Georgian-style house has had only a few owners, and many original trees and shrubs survive from the 1920s. Dick, a Constitutional

law professor at UVA, bought the property in 1965. Mary has been tending the garden since the early 1980s. Its most impressive sight is a massive American elm, one of the oldest and largest surviving elm trees in Virginia, whose beautiful canopy extends over the neighboring property. Below is a large, shady bed of white-blooming shrubs and flowers; chairs set on a stone base are covered with mosses collected from elsewhere on the property. The Howard’s tallest tree is a Metasequoia, or dawn redwood, which they purchased as a one-foot sapling at one of the premier

horticultural display gardens in the country, Longwood Gardens in West Chester County, Pennsylvania. It has grown at a steady clip of six feet per year. Other noteworthy trees on the property include a mature Japanese umbrella pine, a dove tree (native to South Central and Southwest China), an American yellowwood, and many different types of magnolia. A predominantly white and green color theme unifies the landscape design. The flower beds are planted with daffodils and tulips, a variety of other perennials, roses and mature shrubs, while the beds around the lawn are edged

with shade-loving plants like begonia, fern, hosta, toad lilies, and periwinkle. Larger beds feature understory trees and generous shrubs. The large 19th-century gazebo was originally from Augusta County. Visitors will also find an old English fountain, a small fishpond, and a potting shed, which is a reproduction of a smokehouse at the Governor’s Palace in Williamsburg. Many follies, fountains, statuary and relics from the couple’s travels add further charm.

Barracks/Rugby Neighborhood Formal landscaping in front and a private Asian-influenced garden to the rear beautifully complement this corner lot, Nantucket-style shingle home in the Barracks and Rugby Road neighborhood. Purchased in 2006, it was transformed within four years from a typical city yard, with grass and old trees, into a sophisticated, showcase tree and plant garden.

(434) 939-7098

Viewed from the street, the landscaping harmonizes beautifully with the home’s blue-gray shingles. Mature Japanese maples and other small trees at the front of the house anchor beds filled with tulips, daffodils and a large collection of perennials; a geometric boxwood hedge completes the design. From an arched gate, a path leads around the side of the house, where the vibrant plantings in the front give way to a different and more serene aesthetic in back, suitable for peaceful, leisurely walks, or a quiet meditation accompanied by a cup of green tea. A large collection of Japanese maples, a pleasure to contemplate in all seasons, offers contrasting forms and textures and complementary shades of green. Swaths of ornamental grasses, including Japanese acorus, continue the Asian theme, while a fern grotto features an ostrich fern and other unusual specimens such as ‘Dre’s Dagger.’ Raised beds remi-

One Packed Day

A Little History

The 2021 Charlottesville-Albemarle tour may be only one day, but it’s packed full. “All three gardens are going to have something extra in them for visitors to enjoy,” Silver promises. “Pour la Maison Tabletop & Home Décor Charlottesville will display a tablescape in one garden, and Caspari will display one in another. They’ll be set up like someone is coming over for afternoon tea or cocktails. In the other garden, Albemarle Garden Club is going to be doing something very special as well.” In addition to the featured gardens, tour-goers will enjoy Floralscapes, a display organized by Caspari and on view at Tour Headquarters at Zehmer Hall as well as in all the featured gardens. J.W. Townsend Landscapes will provide demonstrations at Tour Headquarters, the Charlottesville Visitors Bureau will have representation, and the Simeon Market food truck will serve from 9 a.m.

Since that first Historic Garden Club event 94 years ago—a flower show that raised $7,000 to save trees Thomas Jefferson planted at Monticello—the Club has contributed $17 million to preservation and restoration of such treasured Virginia sites as Mount Vernon, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, and the Pavilion Gardens at the University of Virginia. Tour proceeds currently fund work at more than 40 of Virginia’s historic public gardens and landscapes, plus a research fellowship program and a new initiative with Virginia’s state parks. Its economic impact on the state of Virginia since 1969 alone totals $518 million. Women like Silver and Cherry who dream and plan and present this much anticipated event are carrying on a proud tradition of not only creativity but community service as well. “When the Garden Club of Virginia was formed in the 1920s,” Silver notes, “women had just

gotten the right to vote. Up until that point, a garden club was one of the few ways women could join together and effect change in their communities.” “From its very inception,” reads an early Club statement, “the Federation has stood for good roads, conservation of native trees and flowers, intelligent warfare against plant pests, and the abolition of the disfiguring billboard. This body of intelligent women has been a potent influence in the life of the state for the conservation of native beauty and the preservation of its historic homes and gardens.” “A committee was formed on the re-

striction of billboards, but met resistance with the General Assembly,” Silver says. “The campaign continued, and the General Assembly resisted again. Legend has it that members with their axes could be seen along the roadsides chopping down the offensive signs. Dogwoods were planted in their place.” It’s a story to warm the hearts of gardeners in an age that is community minded and environmentally responsible thanks in part to the pioneering courage of women like those early Garden Club of Virginia members. And it’s spirit that still animates the club today. “Five years ago, the Garden Club of Virginia pledged $500,000 to the state park,” Cherry says. “That’s an ongoing commission. Through Historic Garden Week the Club funds three different fellowship and restores 39 properties within the state. Locally they are Monticello and the UVA Pavilion.” Among the local community projects Albemarle Garden Club itself funds and conducts is the entrance garden at Route 29 and Fontaine. “In the last two years,” Cherry adds, “we’ve also been putting a fence up at the Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry on Lamb’s Road near Albemarle High School, making some beds, and sprucing it up with plants.” Beautification, edification, and pure delight—fruits all of Historic Garden Week. This unusual year’s “week” is Sunday, April 18, and “our fingers are crossed,” Silver says, “that it’s a sunny day.”

niscent of islands in the grass are bisected by stone walking paths, and a stone-lined dry creek, planted with Viburnum and camellia and other shrubs, runs along the back. A high hedge of cryptomeria and arborvitae provides privacy and a sense of seclusion. “The front of the garden,” says tour Co-Chair Robin Cherry, “is very formal, loaded with a lot of color. Everything pops. In the back there are between 15 and 20 different Japanese cultivars. It almost feels like a Zen garden, it’s so peaceful.”
