Since 1995, I have been creating and leading garden tours ever couple of years to the magical gardens of Ireland and the enchanting gardens of Scotland and Wales. Sometimes co leading or custom designing for small groups who want to have that really unique experience that I can help them discover. My tours are exclusive, personal and fun - where you meet many of the owners and head gardeners and we have a good romp of an adventure in between, capturing the ancient sites, culinary delights and the stories oh the stories. Myfwish is that you experience the land I grew up in and there is nothing more satisfying that knowing I can help you have and extraordinary and memorable trip. I have used the same land agent who handles all my details since 1995. Please contact me directly if you are invested in a small group tour that can be coordinated by me. Or if you would like me to lead you on a tour. Next June I am leading a tour to Scotland and Ireland- see details below
