Other destinations around the verdant Bluegrass countryside are nearby. The Kentucky Bourbon Trail less than 10 miles away.
We enjoy greeting garden visitors, and our best bloom is from June 10 - July 11. Peak bloom could occur as early as the third or fourth week in June. As Winter turns to Spring, we will give updates on how the bloom is progressing. In the meantime, the garden is open by appointment year around.
The garden is open during the hours from 9:30 AM to 2:45 PM, Wednesday – Sunday, June 10 – July 11 or by appointment. Just give us a call to be sure someone will be here to serve you.
