WesterFlora Tour seeks more gardeners

WesterFlora organizers are putting out a final call for participants in this year's garden tour, as the deadline to sign up for the annual event quickly approaches.

Plenty of musicians and some artists have again signed on to set up in gardens of tour participants, said tour publicity chairwoman Linda Laine. But garden entries are lagging just days before the deadline to register.

Entries for the tour will be accepted through 5 p.m. Saturday, June 15.

The 22nd annual WesterFlora Garden Tour is scheduled to take place from 1-7 p.m. July 21. The theme this year is "A Festival of Gardens."

The event is presented by the Westerville Garden Club, the Westerville Parks and Recreation Department and Hoover Gardens.

Applications and entry drop-off boxes can be found at Hoover Gardens, 182 N. Sunbury Road; the Westerville Public Library, 126 S. State St.; and the Westerville Community Center, 350 N. Cleveland Ave.

Applications and information also can be found online at WesterFlora.com.

Questions can be directed to Karen Hovey at 614-882-9955 or Laine at 614-891-5599.
