About My Garden Tours

Each year, I lead a tour to see interesting gardens and meet wonderful gardeners around the world.

We go behind-the-scenes and explore places that most garden tours miss, like meeting tulip breeders in Holland, visiting pepper growers in Costa Rica, and discovering an ancient quiver tree forest in in South Africa.

We visit wholesale plant growers and food farmers, hike to see native plants in their native habitats, tour botanic gardens, research labs, pleasure gardens, private gardens....Wherever there are plants, that’s where we go.

Our success is in our many repeat travelers who know every trip will be a fun, fascinating, unforgettable experience.

Become A Garden Globetrotter

I craft presentations to take audiences places that surprise and delight them. I love to spark new ideas and inspire people with different ways of thinking.

My slideshows transport audiences to gardens around the world, or around the corner. Together, we peek over fences and stroll through estates. We walk trails through nature’s beauty and see that beauty interpreted in botanical garden collections.
