Classic Gardens and Country Estates of England
by Troy Marden - posted 01/24/14

One of the things you will see me post about here from time to time will be opportunities to join me as I lead garden tours to a variety of destinations around the world. Since we have a deadline coming up very soon, I thought I would extend my first invitation to join me on a one-of-a-kind trip to England from June 18-27, 2014. This itinerary includes visits to some of England's most famous gardens and other historic destinations including the Chatsworth Estate, Hever Castle (the childhood home of Anne Boleyn) and Leeds Castle, as well as the world-famous gardens of Sissinghurst, Barnsley House (the garden of the late Rosemary Verey), Great Dixter (the garden and home of the late Christopher Lloyd) and many others.

The deadline for reservations is February 1, 2014.  You can find the full itinerary at my website, here:  or by emailing me at

I hope that some of you will consider joining me on this very special trip!
