American Public Gardens Association’s Go Public Gardens Days, formerly known as National Public Gardens Week, runs this Friday, May 7, through Sunday, May 16, during which, gardens across the country offer free admission and special events to spread awareness and appreciation of public gardens.

The South Fork’s three major public gardens are LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton, Madoo Conservancy in Sagaponack and Peconic Land Trust’s Bridge Gardens in Bridgehampton, and each has opportunities to visit for free — though donations are accepted.

Peconic Land Trust is celebrating with daily videos on its blog, peconiclandtrust.org/blog, by garden director Rick Bogusch. He will lead a virtual walk of Bridge Gardens and introduce some of his favorite spring plants, along with fun facts, tips for their care, and strategies to make them look their best, according to the trust.

Bridge Gardens is open to the public seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and admission is free.

LongHouse Reserve will offer free admission on Friday, May 7, at 12:30 p.m. with tours by horticulturist Holger Winenga. Guests may also explore the gardens on their own. Reserve at longhouse.org/products/national-public-gardens-day.

Madoo offers free admission by appointment Mondays through Fridays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m. To schedule, go to madoo.org/visit and fill out the appointment form.
