Gardens & Farms

A Coastal Community’s Spectacular Show

Greater Portland garden tours are a special way to see some of the city’s hidden gems – some tours incorporate tours of historic properties, summer cottages, inns and "neighbor’s” gardens in all their glory. Those visiting in June and early July will enjoy high time for the city’s colorful show. Garden lovers may even plan their trip around the Portland Flower Show in early spring, a true kickoff to the season, an expo of sights and smells and endless blooms.

Special garden tour events in the city include summer’s "Hidden Gardens of Munjoy Hill” tour, an opportunity for visitors to get an insider look where the gardens are "hidden” to all but ticket holders. Those visiting the home of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow will delight in the Longfellow Garden, a secluded Colonial Revival style garden with meandering paths created in 1926 that is an oasis of green and quiet in the heart of downtown. Follow up with the Tate House Museum herb garden to experience the practical beauty of herbs and learn how they were used as medicine and for cooking in Captain George Tate’s day.

In neighboring communities, "open garden days” and local garden club tours burgeon in the summer, allowing for guided and self-guided tours of hundreds of varieties of perennials, woodland gardens, rhododendron sanctuaries, and peonies, with many communities hosting special events to coincide with the height of blooms. Garden enthusiasts seeking even more immersion can always enjoy a trip to the Boothbay region’s Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, just a short drive from the city on the coastal route to Boothbay. It features waterfront & woodland trails and gardens on 270 acres, and is dazzling year round.
