Gorgeous Gardens of Plymouth Tour is Sunday
This weekend, there’s a chance to view how some Plymouth residents planted a seed for future gardening ideas.
Nearly 6-foot high dill is just one of the sights waiting for visitors to Heidi Heiland’s Plymouth garden at 405 Comstock Ln. N. It’s one of the stops on the Gorgeous Gardens of Plymouth tour this Sunday.
“It’s all self-seeded,” said Heiland about the dill. “I believe in the sustainability and the regeneration of plant materials and them being resilient.”
Heiland’s landscaping stresses sustainability with an eye toward beauty and functionality as well. Drawing on her 40 years experience in landscaping, Heiland’s entire property is a showcase of gardening greatness.
From rain gardens to edibles intermingled with decorative plants throughout her property, Heiland’s plantings are sure to give people ideas for their own yards.
“Yes this is a lot, but I do it professionally,” she said. “So I think there’s ways that people can adopt what works for them and small opportunities, and start small. What did they say when we all went to LED light bulbs – one light bulb at a time. So maybe it’s one plant at a time, or one section of your yard at a time.”
The Gorgeous Gardens of Plymouth tour is Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tickets are available in advance for $10 at Bachman’s nursery, or you can buy them at any of the six gardens for $15. Proceeds go to Friends of the Plymouth Library.
