I visited River Farm recently after a friend told me about their beautiful gardens. Well she wasn’t kidding. It is charming and delightful - a gardener’s paradise. It’s just off of the GW Parkway on your way to Mount Vernon. They are rolling hills, meticulous gardens and a view of the Potomac River. Just lovely.

I was at this property in August 2019 for a wedding. This was a very nice venue for the wedding. Scenic gardens and views of the water. The historic farmhouse was open for self tours during the wedding. A tent was set up behind the house to accommodate all the guests. Hats off to the historical society, who maintains the property !

We had a good time. There was no one around, either in the gardens or in the house to talk with. However, we nosed around and a good time. We will return to see more of the gardens. The house was pretty neat, and I’d like to know more which is why we will return.

This place could be a showcase as it’s located just down the road from Mount Vernon and near Washington DC. Parking spaces are limited. When walking the grounds the ground is very uneven definitely not handicapped friendly. There are some steep inclines. The views of the Potomac River are over grown with limited vision of the river. This is the headquarters of the American Horticultural Society I expected more. None of the plants or trees are labeled as to species.

You may get tired of reading my reviews of The American Horticultural Society at River Farm, however I never get tired of visiting River Farm. I live near Alexandria, VA and one my most favorite places to visit is River Farm and has been for over a decade. I love taking photographs and particularly that of the beauty of nature at different times of the year, under different light conditions and the familiar and new plants.There has been a recent turnover in some of the personnel at River Farm, however I am always happy to see that the dedication and skill is always of the highest caliber. My last visit to date was last month (November 2018.) I'll show you some of the pictures from this visit.
