See what’s blooming during the Utica Garden Faire and Walk

Posted by wlpo on June 6, 2014

Lush green lawns surrounded by meticulously arranged flower gardens await you in Utica. Nine gardens, three public and six private, are included in the annual Utica Garden Faire and Walk Saturday and Sunday.

Diana Deutsch of the Utica Garden Club says they’re having a huge plant sale featuring perennials from their gardens.

Crafts, yard ornaments and garden related stuff will be on sale as well. You’ll find them set up at the Canal Market on South Clark Street. Tickets for the garden walk are $8. The tours are self-guided. You’ll need a car since some of the gardens are outside of the village.

The Garden Faire and Walk is from 9am-4pm Saturday and from 9am-3pm Sunday.

Hear more by listening to an interview that’s up at the WLPO AM and FM news page.
