CHS - "Gardens of Splendor" Untermyer Gardens Conservancy & Wave Hill, with Tom Christopher

Wednesday - Sep 29, 2021

We have a very special guest joining us on this tour! Tom Christopher, CHS Member, horticultural expert, podcast host and author of numerous garden books, including Nature Into Art, about New York’s premier public garden, Wave Hill, will be with us for the day to share his expertise and insider’s knowledge.

Once called “America’s Most Spectacular Garden,” Untermyer Gardens is a 46 acre former estate that is now a public garden. It includes multiple garden areas including a Walled Garden, a grand Vista, a Ruin Garden, the Temple of Love, a Rhododendron Walk and a Rock and Stream Garden. A horticultural docent will give a guided tour.

Wave Hill is a spectacular jewel of a public garden overlooking the Hudson River and Palisades in the Bronx. With world-class gardens and stunning views, Wave Hill’s vibrant landscape is one of the most beautiful spots in New York City. Our guided tour of Wave Hill will focus on seasonal highlights as well as their extensive collection of rare & unusual plants.
