Garden Tours for 2013 & 2014
Robin Lane-Fox in the FT said:
'For gardens in Britain, insiders and outsiders should head for Border-Lines, offering day tours to pre-selected gardens that attract those in the know. It is now run by James Bolton who knows how to satisfy critical English gardeners……he also runs excellent tours to private and public gardens in France and Italy.'
Day Tours in England
Border Lines was started 28 years ago to take groups to see the very best private gardens in the UK. Since then the successful formula for our days has remained largely unchanged, although as a garden designer, lecturer and historian, I have, over the last few years, included a few gardens of historic interest into the annual programme.
The 2014 programme will be published early in the new year.
