Garden of Duncan and Julia Brine. Grass and gravel pathways connect ecologically and horticulturally diverse areas in this naturalistic, six-acre garden and arboretum. The maturing native plant collection includes an allée of Taxodium d. (with knees), groups of Chionanthus v. (with drupes), and more than twenty Viburnum (native and non-native), some with showy and abundant berries. Several imposing hedges of Miscanthus giganteus structure the garden and relate to the Phragmites of this formerly agrarian landscape. You’ll receive a property map and a plant list which indicates U.S. and Dutchess County natives.

The Brine Garden is a chapter of Private Gardens of the Hudson Valley and Gardens of the Hudson Valley and is featured in Designer Plant Combinations, 50 Beautiful Deer-Resistant Plants, Horticulture, and Hudson Valley magazine, amongst others. Duncan Brine is an instructor at the New York Botanical Garden. See images on www.gardenlarge.com.

Each season, select Garden Hosts agree to open their private gardens to share with the public. Open Days garden tours are self-guided and flexible. You can shape your itinerary and set the pace to suit your interests. Always check individual gardens for open hours. Rain or shine. No reservations required. The Garden Conservancy is a national organization with a mission to preserve exceptional American gardens for public education and enjoyment. Become a Garden Conservancy member today!

From May through October, the Frederick W. Vanderbilt Garden Association will once again offer Interpretive Tours of the formal gardens at the Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site. Tours will be given (weather permitting) on the third Sunday of each month during the gardening season: May 18, June 15, July 20, August 17, September 21 and October 19.
 
Volunteer interpreters will discuss the history of the gardens, with a focus on the Vanderbilt ownership and the mission of the Vanderbilt Garden Association to rehabilitate and maintain the plants, shrubs, trees, and statuary in the gardens as they were in the 1930’s just prior to Mr. Vanderbilt’s death. They will also provide information about two major projects the gardens are currently undergoing: the renovation of the “Cherry Walk” and the replanting of the rose garden terraces. Visitors can also visit the 1875 Toolhouse building to look at photographs of the gardens taken during the Vanderbilt era. The Toolhouse will also be open every Saturday and Sunday when the Garden Greeters have their information table at the entrance to the gardens.
 
Visitors should park in the Visitor Center parking lot, and walk down the gravel path from the Mansion to the gardens.
Fee: FREE

Carolyn Summers, landscape architect, author, and adjunct professor at Westchester Community College, will share the trick to a lovely garden that thrives with little or no care.

In addition, Jen Stengle, Community Educator at Cornell Cooperative Extension Putnam County will follow with a discussion on The Sustainable Backyard: Five Easy Practices by offering steps that have positive impacts on climate change, waste streams and native ecosystems. Note: Visitors are welcome to bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the relaxing landscape at the Winter Hill location or perhaps hike to historic North Redoubt.

The Master Gardeners of Cornell Cooperative Extension Putnam County are presenting a series of 3 Saturday workshops on making your garden a vibrant Hudson Valley oasis. The programs will be hosted at 3 different locations committed to the vitality of our unique ecosystem: May 3 at Lasdon Park in Katonah, June 28 at Glynwood Farm in Cold Spring, and October 25 at Hudson Highland Land Trust in Garrison.
