The HPS Tour of the Italian Lake District
September 12 - 22, 2016, HPS will journey to the stunning lakes of Como, Garda, and Maggiore to explore a series of villas and gardens alive with color and fragrance, all set against the arresting backdrop of snow-capped mountains and glittering water. Magnificent scenery and mild climate have made this area a destination for the rich and famous for centuries, and now we Hardy Planters can appreciate it too!
Our twelve garden destinations include the Villa Carlotta, Villa Melzi Park, Villa Taranto, Villa Balbianello, Isola Bella, plus trips to the botanical research center of Fondazioni Minoprio and the André Heller Botanical Garden. We will immerse ourselves in the culture of the place, and thus we have arranged for house tours at Villa Balbianello and Il Vittoriale degli Italiano, plus visits at a lemon house, an olive grove, a vineyard, and an ancient Roman villa. In addition we will tour Sacro Monte, a World Heritage Site.
The Hardy Plant Society/Mid-Atlantic Group (HPS/MAG)
We are a not-for-profit volunteer organization for gardeners in the Mid-Atlantic region. We encourage gardeners - from beginners to professionals - to learn more about horticulture and to share their skills, knowledge, and plants with each other. Members gather throughout the year to visit gardens and nurseries in the Delaware Valley. We sponsor plant sales, trips, seminars, and lectures about plants, ecology, design and propagation, and conservation.
