February 6, 2014  By Canadian Garden Centre & Nursery

Feb. 6, 2014, Abbotsford, B.C. – This fall John and Kelly Schroeder of Valleybrook Gardens will lead a horticulture tour of South Africa.

The tour, which runs Oct. 15 to 29, will include Capetown, Johannesburg and South Africa's garden route. Travelers can also opt to take part in an optional safari during the trip.

"South Africa is an outstanding horticultural destination with amazing plants, a thriving garden centre industry and beautiful scenery," John wrote in a note about the trip. "The tour should appeal to a very wide range of industry interests, from growers to retailers."


The Schroeders have been leading tours for nursery industry travelers for over a decade, offering fun and education itineraries with plenty of opportunities to enjoy the places they visit.
