Gardens on the Saturday Tour
On Saturday, we will start the day with a hot, plated breakfast at the hotel.
Then we will travel by motorcoach bus to tour the gardens of Dave Beckman & Linda Horsmann, Jenn & Steve Lanz, Bill & Dory Lidinsky, and Judie McGraw. Garden descriptions will be in the spring issue of the AHS Region One Daylily Pioneer.
As part of the Saturday tour, we will stop for a buffet lunch at a popular Italian restaurant near the Lanz and McGraw gardens.
While visiting the gardens, select the best daylily you see and give it your vote for the ‘Star of the North’ award, our informal President’s Cup!
In the Lidinsky garden, you can see the Bryan Culver daylilies that will be in the Saturday evening auction. Look for them and plan your bids!
