Join the Polly Hill Arboretum on Tuesday, July 17, from 9 – 4, for a special tour of some spectacular Vineyard gardens.  Begin at the Bressler Garden on Oyster Pond.  This small garden incorporates shrubs, grasses, native plants, and perennials, including 85 lavender plants, on the shore zone at Oyster Pond. From there, proceed to the Geiger Garden in Chilmark (pictured below,) tucked away in the woods, featuring an elaborate water garden.  Lunch will be served at the Polly Hill Arboretum, and from there you will proceed to the Coyne Garden in West Tisbury, located on Looks Pond, the former garden of Nina Schneider, a contemporary of Polly’s.  Then, on to “The Folly,” the Biggs Garden in West Tisbury, hidden off Lambert’s Cove Road.  The large stucco Italianate home features a variety of formal and informal garden areas.
