The Wild Garden Tour with Rick Darke  June 7-18, 2015 

Join us this June for a special tour of Ireland's Wild Gardens in celebration of William Robinson's Wild Garden book with Rick Darke. We'll be taking in private and public gardens throughout Ireland and exploring the wild side of Ireland on the Wild Atlantic Way as well as Dublin,  Waterford and Cork.  We'll then make the trip complete by spending two days at Robinson's own Gravetye Manor in Sussex.  What a treat to be able to spend time with one of America's foremost authorities on sustainable and wild gardening. This is a learning tour, where you will be immersed in talks, walks and discussion with Rick and the locals to learn more about sustainable gardening in your own garden and life as Robinson first taught and how Rick has based his life's work on giving back to the world in which he lives.

Gardens in Ireland consist of some very formal gardens such as Powerscourt Gardens in County Wicklow, to Wild Gardens that so many in Ireland fashioned themselves after in Robinson's book The Wild Garden written in 1870 and republished in an expanded version in 2009 by Rick Darke. On tour we try and explore all sorts of gardens that span Ireland in private back gardens like Val & Helen Dillon's to the great estates as Burtown House & Gardens and making sure you see the real back roads of Ireland, exploring as much as we can and allowing you time to see the different gardens at their best.  

This is two week tour of gardens and historic houses. We will visit off the beaten path properties, chat with the owners of the houses and gardens and spending our evenings in these historic places so steeped in Irish history affording one time to really enjoy the real Ireland and her people.  June 7-18, 2015 Tour limited to 12 persons.  

You can learn more about the tour, watch a video on The Wild Garden in Rick's own words and  Rick Darke himself, at his linked page. If  you would like more information on Rick's work please link here at www.rickdarke.com 

In 2017 we will be embarking on a two week trip to explore the Chelsea Garden Show as well as ramble up to the Lakelands to explore Marta McDowell's view of Beatrix Potter's gardens. Her latest book available through Timber Press, Beatrix Potter's Gardening Life,  is just out and we're excited to be exploring this beautiful part of England. Who knows! We might even persuade Marta to travel with us! Check back for updates!
