Here's an idea! Why not use your vacation time to renovate your flower beds or plan and install a new perennial garden.
Need some fresh ideas? One of the best ways to get new ideas for your yard is to visit established gardens of all kinds like those you will find at Viette's.
At Viette's, we have extensive display gardens to give you plenty of ideas for your gardens. Explore many different sun and shade gardens, a lovely butterfly garden with brightly colored blooms to attract all kinds of beautiful butterflies and hummingbirds, water gardens, rock gardens, hosta gardens with hundreds of different hosta, daylily gardens with thousands of blooms, and many more. They're all right here in one beautiful place! And after you've wandered through the gardens, you can shop in our Garden Center for many of those stunning daylily and hosta varieties.
As you tour the Viette gardens, look at more than just the plants. Pay attention to the landscaping - how the beds are sculpted, how the trees are trimmed, notice the effective use of statuary and large containers, the lovely combinations of trees, shrubs, perennials, and evergreens. Many visitors wander around with a note pad and some even visit once a month or so to watch how the different gardens unfold with the changing seasons, thus getting ideas for season-long interest in their own landscape.
Make your gas dollars go farther! While you're in the Shenandoah Valley visiting Viette's, why not take advantage of some of the other wonderful things our local area has to offer. Our new local winery, Barren Ridge Vineyards, is literally right around the corner. Having converted the family's old apple orchard, John and Shelby Higgs offer complementary tastings and tours in their quaint converted apple barn. The P. Buckley Moss Museum is just minutes away, as is the Museum of American Frontier Culture. Enjoy wandering around historic Staunton and take in a play at Blackfriars Playhouse. If you enjoy antiquing, there are plenty of wonderful antique shops and antique malls in the area as well.
Our Shenandoah Valley offers some of the finest restaurants in Virginia - just ask us!!!
