Another reason to join AHS!!!

Up on line now.

I went to several of the gardens that are on tour this year, a couple of years ago. They are spectacular and well worth the trip. But there is so much else to do as well. And let's not forget meeting 599 other daylily addicts!

I would love to go. I have never been in that part of the country.

I have never been to a National. They do sound like fun!

Oh Juli, it would be great if you could attend!

Horan's, Springwood, and Loonsong I think you could handle. Horan's is small. Sprinwood (Karol) is huge but wide walkways and even wheelchair accessible.

Kyle's has one steep incline on grass I think. Maybe on the other side, there are steps. But not an overly large garden. Just beautiful.

I don't know the other gardens yet.

Yet, she says....as I am tired of staying home while conventions are taking place during my selling season and not having enough walkins to make it worthwhile staying home!

I have heard Carol speak before and she has a very nice program. Is her walks concrete? That would be one way of keeping weeds under control I haven't been to a National yet either but it sounds like great FUN!

When I looked at the schedule, I didn't see any speakers, so I'm wondering if the registration fee is to cover garden tour buses?

I might be off. Maybe two speakers...one for the scientific meeting and one for the hybridizer's meeting?

Are you asking what your registration fee covers?

Everything, from hotel expenses, banquets, buses, bags, etc. It is tres expensive to put on a convention!

Hope that you plan on attending!
