Free Open House of The Secret Garden @ 377!

If you have wondered about my posts from The Secret Garden @ 377 and wanted to see for yourself why so many people from SOMA have downsized to this vertical cooperative community to still be able to garden...

FREE SECRET GARDEN OPEN HOUSE, Saturday, August 13 from 10-3.

If you've been before and want to see the latest stages of the 13 year long project to renew this 60 y/o badly overgrown, 1 acre Italian Style Garden, originally installed in 1955 on the roof of our indoor parking garage, Come on over!

I will be here for plant ID and History and to try to answer your questions.

Happy to show examples of 20 foot monster shrubs, now renewed to 4-6 feet tall. Some of them for the 3rd time!

Our collections include Azalea, Hydrangea, Hosta, Butterfly Bushes, Crepe Myrtle, Iris, many reblooming shrubs and many, many more!

I have learned so much from those in this group over the years and you have played a huge role, offering us many free Oakleaf Hydrangea, Daylilies, Joe Pye Weed, Perennial Hibiscus and more!
