The Friends of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum and DIG IT! Magazine bring you a very special garden experience this June on a Litchfield Lark! Leave the driving to us on an overnight garden-intensive adventure to Litchfield County, Connecticut. Accommodations and almost every meal are included.

We are thrilled so many of you signed up already for this wonderful trip! If you want to be added to our waiting list, call the office at (973) 326-7603. Places do sometimes open up.

You’ll enjoy guided tours at four celebrated private estates with stellar gardens, stay at an inn in Torrington, CT and have a personal tour at White Flower Farm, with the opportunity to do some passion quenching shopping! The gardens are:

  • Maywood Garden
  • Hollister House Garden
  • Linda Allard’s Garden
  • Bunny William’s Garden

Lots more details about the gardens and trip may be found on this page.

The cost of this trip includes the bus, hotel, breakfast, two lunches, and all garden admissions and tours. The only thing you buy is dinner! And plants!

This entire trip, including all of the gardens, is in the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut. All of the properties have rolling terrain with varying paths to walk on such as stone steps, loose gravel, mulch, soil, wood chips and lawn. Please wear sturdy, secure shoes and be prepared to do some walking. NO SANDALS OR HEELS. None of the gardens on our tour are handicapped accessible.

Bus seats are limited!
