Gardens are flourishing -- or have the potential to be created -- in the most unexpected cracks and corners throughout Hoboken if you dig deep enough.

The Hoboken Historical Museum invites gardeners and the curious-minded alike to acquire some urban gardening tips while admiring the sights and smells of springtime during its 17th Annual Secret Garden Tour taking place next Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Tours will feature between eight and nine community gardens off-the-beaten path as well as few bonus not-as-secret gardens to give participants a look at the unique ideas and remarkable skill infusing life into the city landscape.

Gardens that have been on the tour route for a few consecutive years, including a traditional Japanese Zen garden and an Old World garden enclosed in brick, are also on the itinerary to give repeat participants a chance to see how the gardens have evolved through the years.

Tours leave every 30 minutes, with additional groups potentially leaving every 15 minutes depending on the crowds.

Tickets may be purchased in advance at the Hoboken Museum website for $25. Tickets are $30 the day of the tours for non-members of the museum.

Prospective attendees may also visit the museum in person, located at 1301 Hudson St., or call 201-656-2240 to order tickets by phone.

Volunteers are still needed for this year's tours. Interested persons should email volunteer@hobokenmuseum.org for more information.
