Amble through the Pocket Garden Tour of Portsmouth NH
A full weekend of garden tours in Portsmouth, NH happens June 22nd, 23rd and 24th, 2012. Within walking distance or a short drive from the Martin Hill Inn, a Portsmouth bed and breakfast with its own perennial shade garden, you can tour dozens of private gardens both large and small.
On Friday and Saturday, enjoy the annual Pocket Garden Tour hosted by the South Church of Portsmouth. The 23rd annual event begins on Friday from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and continues on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The tour this year will feature 10 gardens in Portsmouth's historic south end. As you tour the gardens, there will be local musicians and refreshments along the way. A special tour pamphlet with map will guide you through the neighborhood and discuss the special details and history of each garden. The walk generally takes three hours and can be done in pieces over the two days if you wish. Tickets are $20 purchased in advance and $23 on the day of the tour. Tickets can be reserved through the church by calling 603-436-2762 or purchased online.
This was our 12th visit to the Inn and we keep returning! The Inn is an old beautiful building and the rooms are extremely clean and comfortable with lovely furnishings. A delicious breakfast was served every morning...
