A little bit about Blithewold Gardens
Blithewold is a 33 acre public garden-arboretum on Narragansett Bay shore in Bristol, RI (Zone 6b/7). Our mission is “to preserve New England’s finest garden estate through excellence in horticulture and historic preservation, and by our example to teach and inspire others.”
That’s really it in a nutshell. But that’s a dry sort of nut, so here’s a garden version straight from the greenhouse potting bench: the garden staff’s mission is to put Blithewold on-the-map through enthusiastic plant choices and our sheer love of colorful abundance and nature’s processes – and to teach and inspire others. Every day, week, month, year at Blithewold brings change and we want you to witness it all – virtually and in the flesh.
