  3. Kevin, We look forward to seeing you on March 07th at the Helderview Garden Club in VOORHEESVILLE ! Your presentations are great! I so enjoy your newsletter! Keep them coming, even from Florida!!

  4. This is possibly the only valid reason I could ever think of for coming back East! Touring your gardens would be a genuine treat for my partner and I.

  5. Hi Kevin….Could you bottle some of that warm weather and sunshine and bring it back with you?? Relax and enjoy…..Joann

  6. Hi, Kevin,
    I will be overseas end of May to June but might be able and would love to see your garden in August. We will probably have to travel on the Friday and stay for the weekend because the drive is quite long. Are you far from the Finger Lakes or is there any other area of interest in your neck of the woods? As far as your address I suppose all the info will be included in the Garden Cons. book.
    Thank you and happy anniversary!

  7. Hi Huguette – Would be wonderful if you could make it to the August tour. Yes, the address will be published in the Garden Conservatory book. I’m approx. 2 hours north of NYC.

  8. Hi, Kevin,
    I got my tickets and am planning a trip out to see your wonderful gardens. How do I get directions?

  9. Hi, Kevin,
    Nevermind. I got the info from the Garden Conservatory website. Have a great weekend! 🙂

  10. Katey – Looking forward to meeting you!

  11. Would love to tour your home and gardens…trying to get daughter and granddaughter to go too…live in Colonie NY so not far from you at all….hope to meet you and see your lovely home and gardens…
