The historic and spectacular Hortulus Farm Garden and Nursery in Pennsylvania has begun its program of spring-summer openings.
Open each Wednesday and Saturday 10am-3pm from now until October, Hortulus is part of the USA’s Garden Conservancy’s Partnership Program, which helps protect and develop some of America’s most significant privately-owned gardens.
Covering 100 acres around an 18th century farmstead in Bucks County, PA, Hortulus Farm has 30 acres of gardens, developed by garden writer Jack Staub and garden and event designer Renny Reynolds over the past 35 years.
An outstanding garden in The Garden Conservancy’s open days program since 2000, Hortulus Farm has 22 separate gardens, connected by a series of trails planted with a variety of flowering perennials. Main feature gardens include a French garden, peony ‘river’, bluebell ‘lake’, perennial borders, Japanese teahouse, dry Mediterranean garden, birch and dogwood allées, heat-loving rock garden, woodland walk, annual flower cutting garden, and various vegetable and herb gardens.
Hortulus also has a nursery selling a wide range of plants, open Monday-Friday all year round.
