On Saturday, June 11 at 10:00 a.m. at Behnke Nurseries in Beltsville, MD, Cheval Force Opp will give a FREE Talk: All About Viette's Annual Daylily & Wine Festival.
Learn about the upcoming bus trip to Andre Viette's nationally renowned gardens, which just happens to be during their Wine Festival! Garden writer, lecturer, and garden tour guide Cheval Force Opp will have photos and a world of information about this exciting trip leaving by motorcoach from Behnke's in Beltsville on July 16, 2011. Cheval and Kathy Jentz, editor of the Washington Gardener magazine, will host this tour and impart their knowledge along the way. So whether you've already signed up or are still thinking about going, we're certain you'll enjoy this overview. (This talk focuses on the logistics of the tour, and is not a lecture about the gardens and festival per se.)
