Garden Tours 2016

Hello, my name is Robert McDuffie.
I am a landscape architect and professor of horticulture in Blacksburg, Virginia.
Over the past 18 years, I have taken over 800 people to visit gardens here in the U.S. and abroad. Our travels have taken us to Japan, New Zealand, Australia, all of the British Isles, and throughout western Europe.
It is my pleasure to share great gardens with people who love them.

For 2016, we have planned a wonderful array of exciting garden tours to Italy, Ireland and Japan. Click on any of the banners below to find out more information. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at
