Russ O'Harra Summer Garden Tour July 17, 2011
The Summer tour will feature four unique gardens in the Marshalltown area:
Lunch and plant auction at one of the gardens. They have a wonderful hilltop location with plenty of room and great gardens to explore. Look for a route map, garden descriptions, and additional tour details - including an added incentive to participate in the summer tour - in the summer edition of Hosta Horizons. Remember to mark your calendar today!

Go to the link in the first post. Go to the newsletters, July 2011. There is a wealth of info about the gardens and tour directions. (Marshalltown area).

ROHS Summer Tour Changes
Sunday, July 17, 2011

Due to severe damages sustained from a storm in the early morning hours of Monday, July 11th, the garden of Don Lovell south of Le Grand, IA,
has been forced to withdraw from the ROHS tour. Don’s garden was scheduled to be the first garden visited.

The tour will proceed with the other 3 gardens although both the Vokoun & Siems garden and the Halverson garden also sustained storm damage.

The tour will now begin in Marshalltown at the garden of Dean & Helen Groeneveld. As this garden is in a residential area on a narrow street with limited parking, people are requested to stagger their arrival times from 8:00 AM to 8:45 AM to relieve street congestion.

If coming from the East, South, or West*, go to Highway 14 which intersects Highway 30 on the south side of Marshalltown and follow these directions:

1. Turn onto Hwy 14 N./S. Center St. (.9 mi)
2. Turn left onto W. Southridge Rd. (.5 mi)
3. Turn right onto S. 6th St. (.1 mi)
4. Take the 2nd left onto Roberts Terrace (SD)

Destination Address: 605 Roberts Terrace is on the right.
Parking is on the right side of the street ONLY.

*If coming from the North on Highway 14, turn right on W. Southridge Rd.

The tour will then continue as originally scheduled to the final 2 gardens.
See the July issue of the Hosta Horizons newsletter for directions.

Omit the first 2 questions of the ‘I Spy’ quiz game as they pertained to the Le Grand area.

Auction plants will now be brought to the last garden.
