Don’t miss this brand new bus tour to stunning Prince Edward County– it’s got it all! We begin at the Century House Bed and Breakfast (est. 1870) with amazing beds of peonies, roses and clematis nestled among mature trees. Look out for the life-sized wooden horse created by a local artist. Pause for lunch, a wine tasting and a visit to the garden sculptures and Japanese art gallery at the award-winning Huff Estates Winery, then head to a lush private garden that was an empty meadow a mere ten years ago. View the majestic sand dunes at Sandbanks Provincial Park, and finish up the day with some shopping for plants, local food and more at the last few stops. Honey Wagon Farms is known for its wide variety of vegetables, gourds, and tasty maple syrup, made the old-fashioned way. Lockyer`s Country Garden grows all their own perennial and annuals as well as housing a charming garden ware gift shop. We finish the tour in the historic town of Bloomfield where we will visit a few gorgeous garden shops, and stop for the best homemade ice cream in the county!
