Experience the beauty of the Tucker Gardens and support a vital cause at the “In Bloom” Tucker Garden Tour benefiting the Cabarrus Victims Assistance Network (CVAN), on Saturday, June 1, from 9am to 3pm. Carolyn Tucker generously opens her private 12-acre gardens for the public to enjoy

Donation required at entrance, or you can give ahead of time online. All proceeds go towards supporting CVAN’s essential services, including a 24-Hour Hotline, Shelter, Support Groups, and more.

The garden, spanning approximately 10 acres, reflects Carolyn’s blend of spirituality and love for fantasy. Beginning with the enchanting Aurora pathway adorned with moss, hostas, and wildflowers, visitors are led on a journey through a whimsical landscape.

The formal granite fountain and “bell tower” inhabited by a suspected troll add to the fantastical ambiance, while the Secret Place, adorned with Lenten Rose and woodland shade plants, offers a serene retreat.

Features like the waterfall and pond, constructed in 1992 using materials sourced from their property, and the Conservatory where tea parties were held, contribute to the garden’s charm. The Lovers’ Garden, dripping fountain, cypress arbor, and rock and night gardens each add their own unique touch.

Lastly, the Hermit House, crafted with handmade bricks to resemble ancient ruins, and the stone with a cross-shaped indentation, add layers of mystique. Despite its fantasy elements, the garden remains a peaceful sanctuary where visitors can appreciate the beauty of nature and find solace in its tranquility.
