Robert Argall Garden

Robert has extended another invitation to CVHS members to attend a guided tour of his garden again on Saturday, April 9th. It has only been a month since he opened the garden gates to us for the first tour, but…

The magnolias (five of the nine), the camellias (all eighteen of them), and the ornamental cherry trees (all but two) are all in bloom at the same time! Robert declares this incredible floral display on all of the shrubs noted has never, ever happened on this scale before in his garden.

Also…after waiting twenty-five years and pretty much giving up hope of ever seeing one of his species rhododendrons (Rex) bloom…Robert is excited to show it off to us. It is covered in buds which are just starting to open!

And finally…the daffodils, hyacinths, early tulips, and wood anemones are all behaving themselves. In fact, there are several thousand out on display now! A sight to behold.

Please take note this is a guided tour which will start at 1:00 p.m.

All CVHS Members should have received an email notice on April 3rd, 2016, noting the address and directions to this Open Garden. If you need further information for this tour, please contact the Coordinator: gardentours@comoxvalleyhortsociety.ca on our Contact Us page.
