The greater Philadelphia area boasts some of the most outstanding gardens in the United States. Join Pacific Horticulture for an inside look at historic gardens, exceptional nurseries, and private landscapes rarely open to the public.

Our itinerary includes visits to estate gardens founded on fabulous wealth and a historic garden pre-dating American Independence, as well as a collection of delightful personal gardens. At Longwood Gardens we’ll attend the fabulous fountain show in the Italian-style outdoor theater. And we’ll enjoy a docent-led tour of Chanticleer, a pleasure garden that’s been called the most romantic, imaginative, and exciting public garden in America. PHS board member Sue Goetz will escort this tour.

This tour is under development with registration expected to open soon. If you would like to be notified of updates please email your contact information to Office@pacifichorticulture.org.
