Decatur residents can welcome spring by taking a stroll through several of the city’s most beautiful public and private gardens in this year’s 26th annual Greater Decatur Garden Tour, sponsored by The Wylde Center.

The tour will feature a unique mix of eight private and three public gardens in and around the city, allowing attendees to drive to each garden and talk to knowledgeable gardeners and homeowners who will be on site to answer questions.

“The always-popular private gardens, like that of noted landscape designer Ryan Gainey, will be included on the tour, along with Decatur’s Woodlands Garden and the Wylde Center’s greenspace, Hawk Hollow,” said spokeswoman Julie Herron Carson.

This year’s theme is the woodland garden.

The event will be this weekend with tour times from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

A special evening tour, featuring live music and refreshments, will occur from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday in the RoseHill garden.

Tickets, which are $20 in advance and $25 the day of the tour or $10 for the RoseHill evening tour only, can be purchased at Intown Ace Hardware, Seventeen Steps and at the Oakhurst Garden or online at www.decaturgardentour.com.
