Strolling through beautiful gardens carried along by wonderful music, is there truly any better way to spend the day with a woman you love? This Mother’s Day weekend (May 13/14) we invite you to connect with gorgeous gardens and enjoy the beautiful Victoria Spring with us. Your two-day pass grants exclusive passage to ten hand-picked, enchanting oasis to revel in the inspiration and joy of gardening while enjoying music from VCM students, faculty and guest musicians.
Also, don’t miss our fantastic plant sale.
The Victoria Mother’s Day Garden Tour has been an important fund raising event for the Victoria Conservatory of Music since 1982. The tour is the brainchild of George and Ann Nation. For 20 years they coordinated the gardens, grew the plants and organized the plant sale, offered tea and provided music to the visitors.
Brian Johnston now coordinates the tour with major help from the Nations and their broad network of friends and volunteers. They maintain the high standard of private gardens that visitors have come to expect.
Visitors come from all over the world to view and enjoy Victoria’s acclaimed private gardens. The gardens range from exotic to native, established or new, country acreage to city spaces. Many visitors come armed with cameras to take away ideas for their own gardens. All come to enjoy the beauty and hear the music presented by the students and faculty of the VCM.
