Follow the Blooms Tour in Bedford

On July 7, the Follow the Blooms Garden Tour in Bedford will take place at five different Bedford gardens and one vegetable garden from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. The individual gardens will showcase water features, swimming pools, garden rooms, perennial beds and borders, raised planting beds, terraces and container gardens.

Outdoor tables will be set up by the Guild for those wishing to bring a picnic lunch.
