We’ll begin our program with the world’s most famous horticultural event, the Chelsea Flower Show. We’ll also visit and study such notable gardens and sites as Hampton Court Palace, Kew Gardens, Stourhead, Stonehenge, Barnsley House, Hidcote Manor, Corsham Court, Penshurst, Chilstone Garden Ornaments, Hestercombe, Iford Manor, Sissinghurst Castle, and the Royal Horticulture Society gardens at Wisley.

As we have been doing in recent years, we will meet up as a group at a hotel near the airport (London Heathrow). You can choose to travel early or extend your stay at your own arrangements.

Enrollment is open only to Extension Master Gardeners (one sponsored guest permitted.)

If you have any questions about the program, please let us know.
