Garden Tours: Mt. Cuba Center

 

There isn't much that is more fun than a group of garden lovers taking a bus ride to see someone else's garden.

 

Washington Gardener magazine, Cheval's 2nd Act Garden Tours and Behnke Nurseries of Beltsville are sponsoring a trip to Mt. Cuba Center in Greenville, Del., on Thursday July 21.

The cost is $60, and Monday is the deadline for reservations. The bus leaves Behnke's at 9 a.m. and returns at 4 p.m. on Thursday.

Mt. Cuba is one of the nation's most celebrated wildflower gardens, with more than 50 rare species located on the former private estate of Mr. and Mrs. Lamont du Pont Copeland, built in 1935.

For more information, email gardentours@gmail.com or call 703-395-1501.

This is the first of four garden tours that will leave from Behnke's this year.

The others are Viette's Annual Daylily and Wine Festival on July 16; Chanticlear and Nemours on Sept. 21, and Longwood Holiday Extravaganza on Dec. 15.
