pennsylvania_wayne_chanticleerIf there’s ever been a more perfect itinerary for Rod Trips Gardeners looking for a tour of East Coast gardens, it hasn’t been devised.

Consider signing up for “Adventure through the Glorious Garden Wonderlands of the East Coast” with The Old Farmer’s Almanac.

This seven-day, six-night tour starts in Philadelphia and ends in Albany, taking you through three states — Pennsylvania, Delaware and New York — to experience more than 10 gardens of all colors, shapes, and sizes. On the tour, you’ll stroll through world-famous gardens, enjoy garden-fresh meals, listen to several educational lectures by garden experts, and be able to purchase seeds from some of the properties. Be sure to bring your best party hat for the opening day meet and greet, complete with tea and cookies.

Here are the highlights of the jaunt, departing June 22, 2015.

· Winterthur house and gardens in northern Delaware. Here you’ll enjoy the Azalea Woods, Magnolia Bend, and the Enchanted Woods (keep an eye out for fairies!).

· The Longwood Gardens, featuring Indoor, Outdoor, Fountain, Tropical, and Naturalistic gardens.

· The Chanticleer Gardens (pictured), just outside Wayne, Pennsylvania, are filled with a variety of colorful gardens, flowers and paths that meander along a brook bordering the property.

· A special lunch at Burpee’s original headquarters, Fordhook Farm, that will include fresh greens, herbs, and any other vegetables that are in season on the property.

· A tour through the New York Botanical Garden, which spans more than 250 acres.
