Rain or shine!


The historic and charming small city of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, is known for its “pocket gardens” - tucked behind fences creeping with clematis or hidden behind sturdy Arbor vitae trees.

This year, we have chosen the neighborhoods of Christian Shore and The Creek in the north end of the city. Anchored by a nearby elementary school and the North Mill Pond, the gardens on this year’s tour were chosen with sustainability in mind, with flower gardens interspersed with vegetable plots and herb nooks.

The tour will take place June 21st 5-from 8 p.m. and on June 22 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The ticket pamphlet contains all the information you'll need: a list of the gardens' addresses and a  detailed tour map.  Suggested places to park are shown in the ticket brochure. 

Tickets are available in the South Church Offices through Friday, June 21 at 2pm. After that, all tickets will be $25 and will be available to purchase at South Church at the start of the tour. 

Tickets are also available to purchase at the following locations: 

Wentworth Greenhouses in Rollinsford, NH

Rolling Green Nursery in Greenland, NH

Portsmouth Vacuum in Portsmouth, NH

Nicole's Hallmark in Dover, NH 

South Church Offices in Portsmouth, NH

The office is located at 73 Court Street in Portsmouth, NH and is open Tuesday through Friday from 9am-2pm.
