Garden Tour Coming To Stonington

There will be a Garden Tour in Stonington in June.  Tim and Lynnae Armstrong invite the public to visit their gardens on Saturday, June 17th, 2023. The garden features a collection of unique trees, including conifers, and beds that have many items up cycled to accent the plantings. Andrew Holsinger, University of Illinois Extension Educator in Christian, Jersey, Macoupin, and Montgomery Counties says that there are a lot of hidden treasures on the property. 


The public are encouraged to register at go.illinois.edu/conifertour to see all the amazing conifers in context of planting.  The garden is open from 2 PM to 4 PM. Visitors will be encouraged to tour at their own speed.  Homeowners will be available to answer any questions that the public may have. The Christian County Master Gardeners will also be available.  There will be adequate parking, but note there will not be a public restroom on site. 


The cost to attend the event is free but registration is required. Location details will be provided after you register. Gwen Podeschi, Master Gardener, visited the site recently and loved it saying that anyone who enjoys the beauty of gardening will surely enjoy the Armstrong’s landscape.  


If you or someone you know enjoys gardening, the Master Gardeners encourage joining the Master Gardener program.  Find out more by contacting the Chistian County Extension Office at 217-287-7246.
