Following a delicious lunch stop on the way comes the visit to Charles Cresson’s garden at Hedgleigh Springs, Pennsylvania, that was planted by his grandfather over 90 years ago. The garden now features more than 2,000 species and varieties in ten distinct “rooms”, which make it seem much larger than its two acres. Cost for the trip is $125 for GEC members and $150 for non members, Call 203-869-9242 to reserve a place or email gec@gecgreenwich.org.

And if you miss out on this one – there’s the GEC’s 2014 Grandiflora Garden Tour – “The Glory of the Garden” tour of half a dozen spectacular Greenwich gardens on June 5 from 10-4 p.m.
