Dahlia Garden

Come and rest with us awhile. Find a shady bench under a tree or stroll through our gardens.

In addition to the 3,000 lavender plants in the fields, there are many other gardens to visit at the farm. The Herb and Flower Garden with its pathways and gazebo, rose gardens, raised herb beds, everlasting garden, and perennial flower gardens stretches between our cottage store and barn.

Behind the barn is an over-abundant vegetable garden, typical of Delaware. Our award-winning Dahlia Garden is behind the cottage store and boasts 64 varieties of dahlias.

The Specimen Hosta Garden surrounds the shady areas around the Manor House.

The Native Wildflower Garden is located in the fenced area just behind the lavender beds.

The Bee and Butterfly Garden is located just north of the wildflower garden and is a wonderful place to take pictures.

 

Our award winning Dahlia Garden is behind the cottage store and boasts 64 varieties of dahlias.

Dahlias are colorful spiky flowers which generally bloom from midsummer to first frost, when many other plants are past their best. Dahlias come in a rainbow of colors and even range in size, from the giant 10-inch “dinnerplate” blooms to the 2-inch lollipop-style pompons. Most varieties grow 4 to 5 feet tall.
