Dixie Regional 2019 Tour Gardens

Welcome to the tour gardens for the Dixie Regional 2019. Please also visit our Welcome Page for more information about our location and attractions.

Five tour gardens will be open to greet convention goers on Saturday, May 4, from 8 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. We also invite you to visit the public hosta garden established last year by the DHS in Zwaanendael Park in downtown Lewes. Three of the five tour gardens are a dozen minutes from downtown Lewes, and the town offers a number of great lunch possibilities. The public hosta garden is a work in progress, and we would welcome feedback from fellow hostaphiles!

Attendees are free to visit the tour gardens any time from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Addresses to each garden can be found in your welcome bag. Be sure to find the auction hosta in each garden that the hosts have selected for Saturday night's auction. Look for the special marker.
