On Saturday, May 11, Adkins Arboretum’s first native garden tour, Celebrating Natives, brought more than 200 participants to seven gardens around Caroline County. Ranging from brand-new designs, to town gardens packed with plants, to established gardens that have been decades in progress, each of the highlighted gardens demonstrated varying commitments to using native plants and sustainable practices. The 2014 tour will take place in Queen Anne’s County.
