PEI Bus Trip July 23/24,2016

Attention Fundy Gardeners - if you missed the March meeting and/or are away for the winter, I wanted you to know that the dates for our summer Bus Trip have been set for July 23/24,2016 and this year we're off to PEI.
We'll be staying at UPEI - 2 sharing a room (twin beds) with a bathroom for every 2 rooms, and visiting a mix of Nurseries, a U-Dig and several private gardens which I hear are spectacular!! See list below.
Here's how to secure a seat….contact myself (Lynn Kinsella) at or prior to April 6 saying who is going, who you plan to share a room with and will you be at the April meeting to pay your deposit, or if you're away for the winter we'll send you Paula's address to mail your cheque - payable to Fundy Gardeners.  Right now we have 21 signed up with many having paid the full amount, so you don't want to delay if really interested in coming along.
  • Cost will be $110/pp based on the shared room and 40 people going. There are a few single rooms but I need to know by April 7 if you need a single and the cost is slightly higher.
  • A deposit of 50% is needed by the April 6th meeting
  • The final payment is due no later than the June 1st meeting.
  • No refunds after July 1.
  • The tour will be open to current Fundy Gardener members first. The tour will be advertised to other gardening groups after our April 6th meeting and I know there are a few Fredericton gardeners who are keen to join us. If you have a friend who wants to come along, after the April 6 meeting, providing there is room, they are welcome to join us.
Tour will include visits to:

Red Lane Gardens for daylilies,
Flower Patch U-dig perennials,
MacPhail Woods Nursery for native wildflowers and trees, Honey Tree Nursery for Magnolias and Japanese Maples,
Aiken House Country Garden at Warren Grove,
Ridley Gardens at Rice Point
Garth Davey gardens at Kildare Capes.
Betty Lou Abbott, Glen Valley, Prince Edward Island

Leave from on the Saturday about 8 AM and return early evening on Sunday. The $110/pp includes your seat on the bus, toll, accommodation and entrance fees for gardens. Additional costs to you will be meals and of course the PLANTS!
If you've never been on a Fundy Gardener bus tour, we always have a GREAT time!!
