Londonderry garden featured in tour

Tiffany Gardens included in annual fundraising tour

LONDONDERRY — Tiffany Gardens will once again be in the spotlight for a summer floral tour.

The gardens at 15 King John Drive will be open to the public July 12-13 as part of the Garden Conservancy’s fifth annual Merrimack Valley Open Days.

The local garden is one of seven featured in this summer’s tour.

The Garden Conservancy is a nonprofit organization that restores and preserves outstanding public and nonprofit gardens across the country.

Money raised through its tours and programs help support this work.

The Open Days program will feature not only the Londonderry garden, but also gardens in Greater Manchester.

Tiffany Gardens is owned and operated by Jim and Kathy McMahon. They have replaced their lawn with nearly two dozen shrubs and flower beds for a 1-acre site laced with grass paths, waterfalls and stony spots.

Tucked away in the King John Drive neighborhood, Tiffany Gardens boasts more than 20 garden beds, connected by grassy paths that wind throughout the property.

Each garden features a large stone topped with whimsical garden art collected over the years. Water features include a fish pond, waterfall, fountain and reflection pool. More than 300 varieties of evergreen and deciduous trees and shrubs are labeled.

The cost for the tour is $30 for all seven gardens or $5 each.
