We are going to do the bourbon tour this spring. What is the optimum time to see the flowers blossom?
The Gardener’s Answer
Hello, Dave: I am certain the bourbon will taste fine anytime of the year, but if your goal is to visit while the flowering gardens are at their peak you should plan your stay anytime from mid-April to mid-June. Technically spring begins March 20, but it can still be quite chilly and hit-or-miss in terms of flowering plants, so just as long as you wait until mid-April I do not think you can go wrong. Depending on the time you choose to go, there will be different plants in bloom since they all have their own bloom time. Mid-April will invite you with spring-flowering plants. Later in June you will get to see all different bloomers put on a show. Enjoy the bourbon and the scenery!
