MMG June Outing to Whistling Gardens

MMGs enjoyed a great outing to Whistling Gardens this past weekend. It was cool & grey out, but the gardens made up for it with great displays of colourful peonies, well over 1000 varieties!

Owner Darren Heimbecker gave us a guided tour of his botanical treasures, accompanied by Leggo, his 6 month old puppy. (Leggo wasn’t as interested in the horticultural detail as we were.) But MMGs thoroughly appreciated the collection of rare conifers, native Carolinian trees and unusual ornamental plants.

It was a great outing and we highly recommend visiting Whistling Gardens with your garden group. A unique, must-see collection for any plant lover. Group tours welcome; guided tours available and well worth it!
