Carole, Our Hort Soc has garden tours usually once a summer in
July. People come in their individual cars one or two at a time so
it's very easy going and I have time to talk with people about what
they are interested in. No problem with busloads. Maybe you could
suggest people come in vans ie in smaller groups. We are having a
second tour this summer in the first week in June which will be
for irises etc.
