Sally’s Garden, a fun spot for children, was planned and is maintained by Edna Haagansen, just one of our veteran gardeners always willing to share gardening advice with newcomers.
Perennial flowers known to the Hart family grow along the top and base of the Dingle (bowling green) walls. Primula, Iris, Peonies, Asters, Foxglove, Chrysanthemums, and Lady’s Mantle, among others, thrive here.
A woodland garden, designed and planted by Marianne Pfeiffer, borders the church driveway and contains shade loving native ferns and wildflowers under a canopy of Persimmon and Pine trees. Hepatica, Trillium, Wild Columbine and Virginia Bluebells bloom among twenty kinds of ferns, a glorious sight from earliest spring through to the end of May.

The Hart House Gardens are entering a new phase of expansion and upgrade, with an eye to creating a space with something to enjoy in all seasons, and to creating more opportunities for the community to share the many pleasures it has to offer.
