CLICK HERE TO DONATE TO OUR INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN with the goal of raising $25,000 to finance operations for all of 2015, our demonstration year. Money will go to contract with Washington Gardener Magazine editor Kathy Jentz to do regular digital outreach to the travel, general and gardening media, locally and beyond; and to pay for graphic and website design. It’s hoped that the success of this comprehensive yet inexpensive campaign in 2015 will attract long-term sponsors to DCGardens.com.

The first of our monthly DCGardens Updates will contain info about major garden-related events in our region during March and April, plus images of what the major gardens will look like then. Subscribe in the sign-up form in the sidebar.

Blooming in APRIL this year.

No cherry blossoms until April! The National Park Service says the peak bloom time will be late this year – April 11-14. But there’s more to March in DC than cherry blossoms – bulbs like daffodils WILL bloom this month. And March is a great time to see bonsai and dwarf conifers at the National Arboretum.
