Garden Time Tours: The Willamette Valley
(July 17, 2015)

On July 17th William and Judy will lead a tour of some our most unique gardens, growers and retailers. We will start our day at French Prairie Gardens. Enjoy a cup of coffee and a couple of their homemade donuts. There we will board the bus and head to Heirloom Roses. Heirloom is one of the leaders in growing roses and their display garden is one that you have to see to believe. Next we will make a stop at Little Prince of Oregon. Little Prince is the sponsor of our Plant Picks on the TV show. They will take us on a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of how they grow those great plants that you see in the garden centers and we will have a chance to purchase some of these great varieties. Next we move to Garden Gallery Iron Works. Don Sprague and his crew are known for their custom iron creations. We will get to enjoy a box lunch there and see their production facility and their retail shop. Next we travel to Bauman’s Farm and Garden. Brian will greet us and fill us in on how the farm operates and he promises to have a few other treats in store! Then we head to Sebright Gardens. Sebright grows tons of different hostas, hardy ferns, epimediums and other companion shade plants. Thomas has been on the show before. He will walk you through some of their cool and unusual plants, or you can just walk around their great display garden.

Tour stops will include opportunities to buy plants. Some at discounted prices!

We wrap up the day back at French Prairie Gardens for a great Farm to Table dinner as the sun sets on our first Garden Time Bus Tour. We hope that you can join us on this trip.

The price for this trip is $75 per person and includes your breakfast snack, the box lunch, bus transportation and the Farm to Table dinner and one adult beverage. We hope to see you there. You can pay with your credit card through Paypal or you can send a check (made out to Gustin Creative Group) and mailed to 17554 SW Mardee Ave. Lake Oswego, Oregon, 97035.
