Our last garden tour for the year is "Glorious Autumn Gardens led by our expert horticultural tour leader Andy McIndoe".  This late season four day, three night garden tour is perfect if you are seeking out inspirational gardens and planting advice to be able to add that last burst of colour to your garden before the exhuberance or spring!  We explore private gardens, nurseries and famous gardens in Hereforeshire, The Welsh Borders and North Cotswolds - all carefully selected for seasonal interest, colour, shape and form.  We stay in Ross-On-Wye in a small comfortable country house hotel with its own parkland and gardens.  Space is now limited - we limit our garden tour numbers to 32 people.

Horticultural Tour Leaders:

By popular request all tours will be led by expert horticultural tour leaders, including Andy McIndoe and Duncan Coombs. Duncan Coombs, has led garden tours for Brookland since 1999 and he is also a part time RHS advisor at the RHS Centre, Pershore College, Warwickshire. Duncan also leads tours to China for the RHS.

Additional Tour Joining Points:

Those who have travelled with us before will have started from Romsey as, for 14 years, our tours were exclusive to members of one of Hampshire's Garden Centre chains.  Our tours still pick up in Romsey yet also at a range of convenient pick up points in the South, South East and South West.   One of the central joining points is Winchester. this delightful cathedral city is served well by South West Trains with a direct link from London. We will do our best to consider your joining requests, if they are not listed as standard pick up points.  Much depends on the route that the coach is taking to and from the destination and we will avoid too many pick ups as these are garden tours and we know that travelling around the country with multiple joining stops is not ideal and detracts from the very essence of the tour.

The itineraries are carefully designed to include something for everyone – private gardens and nurseries as well as some of the “must see” famous gardens.  Where possible we meet private garden owners and Head Gardeners who can share their horticultural experiences with us. Many garden visits end with a leisurely sit down and refreshments (often home-made) providing that perfect opportunity to reflect and relax.  For most tours there will be a horticultural tour leader as well as a knowledgeable Brookland Guide to look after you and numbers will be kept low to enhance your enjoyment and experience.

HOW TO MAKE SURE YOU RECEIVE DETAILS OF NEW TOURS:

We will continue to add new themes to our programme throughout the year, including the ever popular “Highgrove Tours" some of which include a private viewing of "The Laskett Garden”.  are one night, two day short breaks. Register for further details on the News/Newsletter link and you can also download the details of the 2017 holiday programme.
