Friday, June 29, 5:00 pm – Cocktails in Great Gardens – Kinderhook, New York

Berkshire Botanical Garden again hosts its Cocktails in Great Gardens series, and on Friday, June 29 at 5 pm, they will be in a private garden in Kinderhook, New York. An allée of mature maple trees welcomes you to the home and gardens at this lovely Kinderhook, New York property. The main garden was conceived as a contained counterpoint to the surrounding farmland with a series of spaces, each with its own character. A kitchen garden of boxwood parterres and espaliered pears is planted with summer vegetables and herbs; the main lawn is enclosed by a boxwood and hornbeam hedge with a visual break revealing a view to the pond, fields, and mountains beyond.
