Seasons greetings from the Gibbs Gardens family to you and yours!
We invite you to enjoy the last days of fall with a brisk walk along our garden paths. Gibbs Gardens will stay open through Dec. 15 then close until March 1, 2014.
Visit in the next few days and you will see why garden experts say Gibbs Gardens—beautiful in any seasons—has "good bones." You will find more than 1,000 hollies of many varieties displaying Christmas berries throughout the gardens. The Viburnums and Nandinas are also covered with berries and the birds are everywhere enjoying their new food source. Don't miss the native American holly with bright red berries and our many majestic evergreens adding a festive touch throughout the Gardens.

On behalf of the Gibbs Gardens family, I want to thank all our members and guests for their support and enthusiasm during our second year as a public garden. It is a joy to greet you in the Welcome Center or along one of the garden paths, to answer your questions and hear your comments.
I started building Gibbs Gardens in 1980 but my dream of creating a world-class garden in the Atlanta area began many years earlier. That dream took shape as I traveled all over the world visiting unique and amazing gardens. Inspired by their beauty and the artistry of their designers, I spent more than 30 years designing and developing the Gardens; along the way, I often wondered if you would find as much pleasure visiting the gardens as I had experienced building it.
My reward is seeing you enjoy the sights, sounds and scents of our natural setting. We are delighted to receive your emails, see your photos or listen to your ideas and comments. Through this interaction, we learn more about the ways we can enrich the Gibbs Gardens experience for you.
In response to your feedback, this year we introduced our garden blog, added labeling to more than 100 plantings in the Gardens, expanded our music program and added several events—from cooking demonstrations and plant sales to a 32-piece band. We introduced our first Japanese Maples Festival and celebrated two weekends of Japanese arts and culture.
And, because you asked for it, we are once again offering a free guest pass with the purchase or renewal of each 4-Season Membership in December.
As one gardener to another, there’s still time to order and plant daffodils in your own garden for spring 2014. Check out the Gibbs Gardens collections for the best of naturalized daffodils.
Look for more exciting events and programs in 2014. We plan to keep in touch with you while the Gardens are closed and hope you will check the Gibbs Gardens website often.
We wish you all a happy holiday season and look forward to seeing you in the gardens until we close Dec. 15. I’ll be waiting to greet you in the Welcome Center next March 1.
