Tickets also may be purchased beginning at 5:45 PM the evening of the tour at this year’s starting location, 4237 Lyndale.

Tour-goers will have the opportunity to visit a variety of private gardens owned and nurtured by passionate gardeners, who will be able to answer questions. Expect to take home some great tips and ideas from homeowners who work within the confines of city lots in our challenging Minnesota climate.
