Cleveland Garden Walk (7/12 & 13/2014)

Saturday, July 12, 2014
GardenWalk Cleveland was founded by two women who were impressed when visiting the GardenWalk Buffalo in 2010, and they started one in Cleveland in 2011. This year five neighborhoods were showcased: Detroit Shoreway, Tremont, Slavic Village, Glenville, and Larchmere.
Today we went to Larchmere where there are 22 private home gardens, 1 apartment balcony garden, 7 business gardens, one community garden, and one Learning Farm.

"Tony Zajac has lived at 7003 Claasen Avenue for the past twenty years. The back yard is approximately 35’ wide by 35’ deep. In that space he has 145 annuals and 50 small evergreen trees in pots, 10 roses in the ground , 3 clematis vines, dozens of hostas and a medium size Japanese Maple tree.  A snowdrift crab apple tree shades the back yard. The annuals include three kinds of impatience, lobelia, licorice plant, supertunias, several different colors of coleus, snap dragons, alyssum, vinca vines, and Asiatic lilies. Tony uses no chemicals on his plants. This year he is experimenting with growing raspberries and blueberries in pots."
And thus we ended the GardenWalk with a big "wow!"
