Stamp Your Passport Series: Appleford Estate

June 21, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Within 30 miles of Philadelphia, there are nearly 40 public gardens–this makes the greater Philadelphia area America’s Garden Capital [link]. Experience gardens near and far with this new series for Associates of the Scott Arboretum. Pack your America’s Garden Capital passport and let’s go! 

Enjoy the serene beauty of Appleford Estate in Villanova during private guided tours of the gardens and house. The gardens of this 24-acre estate were designed by acclaimed Philadelphia landscape architect Thomas Sears, who also designed the Scott Outdoor Amphitheater. You will experience a series of lush formal gardens, brick walkways, and rhododendron tracts, set off by a stream, pond, and waterfall. While inside, don’t forget to experience the garden from the windows; each vista holds an air of enchantment and distinguished charm.
