Bucks Beautiful was founded in 1990 by Robert and Joyce Byers and Jack and Carol McCaughan to enhance the world fame of Bucks by promoting gardens in communities, towns, along roads, business premises and private homes.
Bucks Beautiful is a county-wide organization that makes a difference to the residents of Bucks County and the economic viability of the local businesses by developing gardens and community enhancements that make Bucks County a more attractive place to live and more inviting to tourists. With its educational partners, Bucks Beautiful initiatives teach future generations of children to engage them with horticulture. By working together, Bucks Beautiful seeks to develop sustainable landscapes that are not only attractive, but will support and foster a healthier environment.
Upcoming events are:
Bulbs for Bucks
The objective is to locate broad drifts of daffodils at key locations throughout Bucks County. In four years Bucks Beautiful has planted over 750,000 daffodil bulbs. Thanks to this program, Bucks County has been acknowledged as one of the must see places by the National Daffodil Society. You can support Bucks Beautiful and join them for the annual “Spring Fling” scheduled for Friday April 11th.
The Kitchen & Garden Tour
Each year Bucks Beautiful features distinctive gardens and kitchens in the Doylestown area. Last year it included antique autos and a raffle for fabulous plants. Penn State Master Gardeners are available to answer horticultural questions. This year it will offer a fall tour, an afternoon tea, and extending the tour “Beyond the Borough.” Selected venders will supply some rare treats for garden enthusiasts.
