Fort Ti sponsors garden tour

Fort Ticonderoga is organizing a one-day tour of the Montreal Botanic Gardens on Tuesday, Sept. 18.

The tour will be hosted by Heidi Karkoski, Fort Ticonderoga’s curator of landscape, and Leonard Perry from the University of Vermont, and begins at the Horticulture Research Center in South Burlington. Carpools from Ticonderoga will be organized.

“This tour is timed to coincide with the Chinese lantern display. This display of hundreds of handmade silk lanterns is stunning at night, but is even more colorful and easily seen in daylight,” said Karkoski.

In addition to the lanterns strung along walks, each year the main display represents a new theme and new lanterns, some floating in the pond, some over 10 feet high, displayed throughout the largest Chinese garden outside China. Also on display is the largest Penjin or Chinese bonsai collection in North America.

Visitors will also find the modernistic Japanese garden, tea room and many specialty gardens.

Space is limited for the tour and registration closes on Aug. 30 or when all seats are filled. To register, visit www.fort-ticonderoga.org or by call 585-2821.
