Behind the Scenes at Tryon Palace: Gardens
Tryon Palace gardeners will meet guests at the Waystation to view what is blooming in the 16 acres of Tryon Palace Gardens.
During tours of the palace gardens, visitors will discover what is in bloom this spring, learn about specific plants and design techniques, see the vegetables served on the governor’s table this season, and take a behind-the-scenes peek into the nursery yard.
Tours also include information on the Waystation cistern project, garden weddings, privy and parterre gardens, and the use of produce in the kitchen garden. Behind-the-scenes garden tours include access to all gardens, including the Green, Latham, Wilderness, Kellenberger, and Kitchen gardens.
Tour begins and ends at Palace Gates.
Admission: $6 adults, $3 youth
