This year’s Landscape Design Tour will be heading to Philadelphia and will include guided tours of some of the most impressive and influential gardens in the country. As part of the excursion we will stroll through the romantic English-style landscape of Winterthur Mansion, explore the French formal Gardens of Nemours Mansion, immerse ourselves in the native plants of the Piedmont at Mt. Cuba Center, revel in the creative combinations of tropical and hardy plants at the nation’s premier pleasure garden at Chanticleer, and spend an entire day at Longwood Gardens to enjoy their fountains, 4.5-acre conservatory, and 86-acre Meadow Garden.

With over 300 years of horticultural heritage, you will become familiar with the history behind some of the greatest gardens of the world. Throughout the tour you will get a chance to go behind the scenes with the experts including Matthew Ross, Coordinator of Continuing Education at Longwood Gardens and Danilo Maffei, President of the APLD. This will be the trip of a lifetime!
