You are welcome to visit the Blomidon Inn Gardens any day from 8am until dusk!
The history of the gardens
In researching the history of the inn, mention is made of the beautiful Victorian gardens which offered a burst of colour at all times on the 4 acre property between the Spring and Fall. Work began in 1995 to reestablish Victorian style gardens. Jill Robinson, a landscape designer from Halifax, has been working with the Lacebys enhancing and nurturing the established gardens as well as developing new gardens. A terraced vegetable garden was constructed in 1996. It provides the dining room with fresh unique salad greens, beans, tomatoes and peppers. 1999 saw the construction of the pond gardens.
The Lupin Hill was maturing by 2001. A second bridge was added in 2002. 2003 will see the completion of our horseshoe composter.
|There’s lots to see from the early spring flowers …. through the last leaves of autumn.||
There’s a Serpentine Rhododendron & Azalea garden.
A Rose square with a gazebo.
|And three pond gardens.|
Enjoy the horseshoe perennial garden and see if you can find the Lupine Hill.
