Welcome to Copper Beech Garden Tours!

The 100th anniversary of the Chelsea Flower Show in London, England, was fabulous! Spending the day at the show was the culmination of a fantastic tour of Cotswold gardens. Our hotel, the Ellenborough Park, in Cheltenham, made us want to return soon and often.

If you would like to join one of my tours (as few as 10 but limited to 14), send me an email and ask to be placed on the list. You won't get spam. You will, however, be one of the first to hear about the tours. When a tour is posted on my website, all my friends and previous participants already know about it. I send it to those on my list 10 days before it hits the internet.

Here is what's on for 2015:

In late May, Ireland will be our destination. With a climate similar to England's, the gardens are just as spectacular but less visited. I am working on the itinerary now, and there are some great features that are accumulating. I found out that Dublin is having its own "Chelsea" flower show Thursday, May 28-Monday, June 1, 2015. I'm hoping to arrange a visit to Helen Dillon's garden while in Dublin as well as a visit to Dublin's National Botanic Garden. I'm planning to take us through the countryside so that we can see the Ring of Kerry on the west coast - the views are breathtaking! Plus, the Waterford Crystal Factory is on our way so we might make a stop there. There's still a lot more to work out, so stay tuned for more details.
