On Saturday, May 11, the public is invited to tour two private gardens in Springs and Wainscott through the Garden Conservancy’s Open Days program.Open Days began in 1995 and have welcomed more than 1 million visitors to thousands of private landscapes, ranging from urban rooftops and organic farms to historic estates and innovative suburban lots, according to the Garden Conservancy, a national nonprofit dedicated to saving and sharing outstanding American gardens.

Abby Jane Brody’s Glade Garden at 44 Glade Road in East Hampton features rare and unusual ornamental trees and shrubs. Shade-loving perennials form the understory and groundcover of this garden carved in native woodland over a 35-year period.

The garden has been planted for year-round interest. In mid-spring, camellias rise above carpets of hellebores, woodland phlox, wood anemones, and minor bulbs, and are succeeded by Epimedium, Daphne, fragrant rhododendrons, peonies and more.

A selection of Ms. Brody’s plants will be available for sale.

The Biercuk & Luckey Garden at 18 Sayres Path in Wainscott is a four-season woodland garden. A high oak canopy shelters a collection of rhododendrons, azaleas, Kalmia, Pieris, understory trees, perennials, bulbs, and tropicals in season. A mostly sunny rear corner contains a pool designed as a pond with a waterfall and surrounded with plantings that peak mid-July through October. “Winding paths and stone walls enhance a sense of depth and elevation change on a mostly flat acre,” the Garden Conservancy stated.

Saturday’s tours are available between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Admission is $10 per garden; children 12 and under are admitted for free. Call 888-842-2442, or visit gardenconservancy.org/open-days for more information.

Additional Open Days on the East End will take place on June 1 in Cutchogue and Flanders; June 15 in East Hampton; July 6 in Jamesport and Mattituck; July 13 in Bridgehampton and July 27 in East Hampton.
