Please join us for a fall garden tour in Marijke’s beautiful gardens! Gardens are indispensable to attract beautiful birds, bees, and butterflies. Fall gardens also serve migrating birds and butterflies to be well-fed for their journey. They give great joy to the gardener and visitors.  Learn about creating and overwintering tricks for plants and everything else alive in your garden. Bring your questions – Marijke loves to share her knowledge with you!

This tour will interest gardeners as well as non-gardening nature admirers. Come find out for yourself and enjoy this special guided tour for inspiring and valuable information on planting gardens that you can enjoy all season!

“Magical, inspirational, different, heavenly, whimsical, paradise, a wonderful community of plants, bees, birds, and animals” …are some of the comments of visitors to Marijke’s Perennial Gardens Plus, located in South Starksboro, Vermont.

Whether you are visiting her gardens for ideas, knowledge or are wanting to add to your own gardens, there is something for everyone. You can also purchase from a wide selection of hardy field-grown perennial plants, herbs, indoor succulents and much more.
