Party With the Peonies!

You've read about her fabulous garden in the Spring 2011 issue of Washington Gardener Magazine and in last week's Washington Post, now you can see it in person!

Party With the Peonies: Gail Gee's Private Garden Preview Party and Open Garden
Saturday, May 21, (Raindate: May 28)
Though the garden is known for its fabulous, rare peonies, which should be in full glory during this special morning in May, there’s much more to this three-acre paradise. It was created as Gail’s personal pleasure garden and features wonderful color combinations in the English Style. This is an event to benefit Brookside Gardens.

Preview Party 9:00–11:00am
$35 per person, Event number 138799 (registration required at
Sip cool drinks and sample tasty treats as you stroll through Gail Gee’s spectacular garden in Fulton, Maryland during a festive Preview Party. Preview Party attendees will have first choice (prior to Open Garden hours) of select intersectional peony varieties and other signature plants, which will be available for purchase. As a preview guest, you will be one of the few who will receive an exclusive tour of the garden with Gail and Phil Normandy, Brookside Gardens’ Plant Collections Manager (who has consulted with Gail on plant selection and design from the garden’s inception in 2001).
During the Preview Party, Washington Gardener Magazine staff will be there selling copies of the Spring 2011 issue and signing up new subscribers. A portion of all Washington Gardener Magazine sales at the Preview Party will go to benefit Brookside Gardens.

OR attend the Open Garden, 12:00–4:00pm Gail’s garden will be open for self-guided tours in the afternoon.  $5 per person Event number 138849 (Advance registration encouraged at
