The daylong event, with gardens open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., is a self-guided driving tour to the best and most beautiful private gardens in Putnam County. Homeowners will guide participants through their landscapes, telling the history of the gardens and answering questions about plantings and designs.

This is a rain or shine event. Advance ticket prices are $30 for all the gardens and may be purchased online at putnamsecretgardentour.com.
