A signature event of the Lyme Gardeners, “Pardon My Garden” allows host gardeners to ask for help with problems, talk about down- or up-sizing, and for visitors to share experience, knowledge, and enthusiasm. This program is one of the reasons Henry Homeyer, “The Garden Guy” of the Upper Valley, considers Lyme Gardeners one of his favorite local clubs. In a 2015 blog post, he wrote “‘Pardon My Garden’ events are different. Weeds are to be expected. Gardeners share what they are doing, but visitors do not expect Martha Stewart-like displays. I like that.”
Anyone in the Upper Valley with a passion for gardening, whether experienced, brand-new, or no longer active, is welcome at any Lyme Gardener event.
