Garden Visits and Tours

Head Gardener at Armadale.

Whether organising your own gardening tour or joining a tour group, visiting other people's gardens is surely almost as exciting as being home in your own garden!

Lots of celebrities, as well as real gardening experts, lead garden tour groups to faraway places. If you like to 'do your own thing' there'll many surprises in store. Many countries have Open Gardens schemes (for example, the famous yellow book of UK gardens). Concentrated Google searching will give you more than enough gardens to choose from.

The garden visiting links that follow are just the tip of the gardening iceberg. I've been to each of the gardens in person, an 'anonymoosey'.

As for the tours - well, I'd love to try each and every one out - maybe next holiday! Tour links to come...
