Letters to The Rocket: Blowing Rock to feature special gardening events during month of June

June is one of the loveliest, most verdant months in North Carolina’s prettiest small town, and the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce has organized three weeks of garden-oriented events and activities in and around the town to take advantage of nature’s floral bounties.
Gardening Month runs from Sunday, June 12, through Tuesday, June 28, with garden tours, nature walks, seminars, lectures, luncheons, teas, demonstrations and more taking place on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays in that three-week period.  
Lovers of all things floral who want to avoid the weekend crowds of high-season visitors can come and stay for two or three days and take in Gardening Month events and the local surroundings at a more leisurely pace.
For more information about the many events and activities during Gardening Month in Blowing Rock, visit or call the Visitor Center at (877) 750-4636.
Tickets for all events may be purchased through the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce at (828) 295-7851.
