Enjoy Beautiful Gardens!
The EHS Annual Garden Tour is the most popular event of our year and the perfect way to spend a summer weekend in July.
- Tour some of the Edmonton area’s best gardens
- Chat with their gardeners
- Learn what grows here
- Get design and planting ideas
- Soak up the beauty
Each year’s tour is self-guided. Your ticket will include the gardens, their addresses with driving directions, and a brief description of what makes each garden special. Start where you choose and proceed at your own pace. The tour goes rain or shine. We do not offer refunds.
The Gardens: The gardens are chosen for quality and variety. Their gardeners are passionate and ready to welcome visitors. Each garden has a particular charm and special features. Many are award-winning gardens. Each year brings new gardens.
Touring: This event is not to be missed if you enjoy gardens and beautiful plants. Make a day or a weekend of it. Invite a friend or two to join you. Stop for lunch at a favourite restaurant along the route. Take time to really enjoy each garden. Please show your appreciation by following appropriate garden etiquette.
