 GARDEN TOURS 

 
The Garden Club of Bermuda is excited to unveil its new promotional postcard for Garden Tours (above)!

It is anticipated that this postcard, with notations on the back and space for a message and address, will be distributed island-wide, and hopefully further afield through travel agents and our many ambassadors.

Visit the glorious gardens of our semi-tropical paradise through the Garden Club of Bermuda's Garden Tours Programme.  Bermuda has a wealth of exotic flora whose list is seemingly endless and includes: Frangipani, Royal Poinciana, Hibiscus, Bermuda roses, Passion Flower, Agapanthus, Bouganvillea, Stephanotis, Orchids, Bird of Paradise, Oleander, Jasmine, Lady of the Night, Night Blooming Cereus, Bermuda Easter Lily, Wild Freesia.  Local fruits include papaya (pawpaw), starfruit, loquats, surinam cherry, citrus, and avocado, a list of the vast array of vegetables that many locals grow can be seen in our gardening page, and many medicinal herbs grow wild. 

This year, The Garden Club is expanding its Garden Tours Programme and is very excited to be able to offer private garden tours which can include afternoon tea, a glass of wine, lunch or dinner in a Bermuda garden or house setting for groups of four or more.  We are very open to suggestions, and are more than happy to provide a very unique Bermuda garden experience tailored just to your needs.  Basic garden tours are $100 for four persons or less, $25.00 each additional person. Includes at least two gardens.  Please apply for our special garden tours' pricing to Mrs. Davidson or Mrs. Gutteridge, details below.  All proceeds go to  the Garden Club's Scholarship Fund and Community Projects.

The Garden Club is also pleased to have become a member of the Bermuda Heritage Partnership whose mission is to promote cultural visits, tours and adventures in Bermuda.  Other members are the St. Georges Foundation, the Bermuda National Trust, The African Diaspora Committee and the National Museum of Bermuda. The many lush gardens of Bermuda are a major cultural asset of Bermuda and we welcome visitors to our beautiful Bermuda gardens.
