A long time Master Gardener, Pamela's gardens have been created from happily acquired hand-me-downs and several “just have to have” favorite plants. She has chosen the no-lawn approach to her landscape. A plant lover’s oasis with many perennials, shrubs and trees; some are in the perfect spot and others in various states of "almost" appropriate placement. (Having her own business in gardening, one can understand the "almost"!) Newer planting areas are continually in the making. Using a “recycle” philosophy, the gardens are a mix of the familiar and well loved while always entertaining new "friends"---Plants, of course!
The Fornari Garden at Poison Ivy Acres
This will be the tenth summer on Poison Ivy Acres for Dan and Master Gardener C.L. Fornari. Along the road see the "dry garden" of drought-tolerant plants. Next is the trail garden where C.L. plants new varieties to see how they grow. This area shares space with the cutting garden just above the large vegetable beds. There are flowerbeds on all sides of the house, and many varieties of hydrangeas. See great color combinations and a wide variety of all types of plants.
Garden by the Sea
Located near Osterville’s quaint downtown, this beautiful garden is set on the water. As you enter through the cobblestone lined driveway’s gate, explore this Master Gardener’s abundant landscape. Perfect for strolling, this garden features over 150 hydrangeas, roses, perennials, flowerbeds, and evergreens.
A Beekeeper's Garden on Blueberry Pond
Giving up your big family home may be easy but giving up your big garden of treasured well-loved plants collected over the years may be more difficult. Come view a small freestanding Master Gardener's condominium garden. Fulfilling an 18-year dream to move to Cape Cod, this 2year old garden boasts 65+ cultivars of Hydrangeas, the quintessential Cape Cod woody ornamental genus.
