Dates for the Diary
Just a quick heads-up of a series of events in the state of Virginia, USA and one in Oxford, UK.
The Historic Garden Week is organised by the Garden Club of Virginia and this year is to be held between 21 and 28 April. To quote the website 'visitors are welcomed to more than 250 of Virginia's most beautiful gardens, homes and historic landmarks during "America's Largest Open House."' The full programme of tours covers properties and gardens state-wide - including Mount Vernon, the home of George Washington - and is a fantastic opportunity to see living garden history.
