The garden at the historic house on 118 Johnston Street is the fourth winner of the Garden of the Week contest.

Paul Evans and Scott Langill have been owning the bed and breakfast, also known as The Stocking House, for two years. The 200-year-old house is named after the home’s first owner, Jared Stocking, said Langill.

“It’s a wonderful pleasure to have such an honour in Niagara-on-the-Lake because it’s the prettiest town in Canada,” Langill told The Lake Report. “And it’s great to participate in that and we want all the other homeowners to win every week as well.”

“This is an old-fashioned garden that frames the period home with a mix of trees, shrubs, perennials and stone sculptures,” the judges said in a news release from the Town of NOTL. “In addition, a lovely arbor is covered in roses and window boxes which completes the look.”
