England Trip - East
Windmills and lavender fields, historic abbeys and castles, a beautiful
coastline and the watery, man-made landscape of the Broads. .
.where can a traveler find all of this? In East anglia, of course,
the destination for the HPS overseas summer tour. Join us for a
trek through Norfolk and Suffolk, a beautiful garden-rich area of
East Anglia is one of the driest parts of the United Kingdom, and as such, it offers us, as gardeners
in an increasingly unpredictable environment, a chance to see how
English gardeners approach the subject of sustainability. The garden
list includes 23 gardens in all, plus the atmosphere of some of
England's oldest and most charming small cities - Norwich and
Bury St Edmonds
We will visit the grandest of houses,
Sandringham, the Norfolk retreat of the Queen,
as well as the quaintest of private gardens such as
Moverons. Will Giles, who will speak at this year's March Into Spring, will welcome us to
The Exotic Garden, and we will stop at the
East Rushton Old Vicarage. We will see sculpture
amid the plantings at
Gibberd Garden, walk the lovely grounds of
Beth Chatto's Gardens, as well as Bressingham
Gardens and Hyde
Hall Gardens. We also will have time to explore
the city after visiting the
Cambridge Botanical Gardens.
Our group will gather at Heathrow
on August 11, 2012, for a ten-night tour. Our three hotels have been
chosen for comfort and regional atmosphere, all affordable
three-star hotels. Two are located in historic small cities, and the
third is outside the city and offers a pool and exercise facilities.
