Dow Gardens


The Black Swamp Hosta and Daylily Society have a bus trip to Midland, MI to tour Dow Gardens on Saturday, July 26. The bus trip is now open to the public.

Dow Gardens were initially developed by Herbert H. Dow, founder of Dow Chemical Company on the estate he shared with his wife, Grace, and their family. The garden covers 110 acres of Midland’s beauty and heritage and includes some of the finest horticultural displays in the Midwest. Five distinct areas in the garden include the Stream Walk, the Estate Garden, the Color Garden, Pineside and the Exploration & Children’s Garden. After visiting Dow Gardens, we will stop for lunch at Café American Restaurant. On the return trip to Toledo we will stop at Bordine’s Nursery in Brighton.

Entry fee for the garden, the cost of your lunch at Café American Restaurant, transportation via motor coach, and snacks on the bus are all included in your registration. We will be leaving the parking lot of Toledo Botanical Garden at 5434 W. Bancroft Street SHARPLY at 7 A.M. Cost of the trip is $50 each per BSHDS member, and $55 each for non-members. Seats are available on first come-first served with a paid reservation, and will be limited to 45 people. NO REFUNDS! Reservations and payment must be received by Tuesday, July 22.
