2014 ADS National Conv Registration form
Hosted by the Arkansas Daffodil Society
Rooms reserved by February 28, 2014 are $106.00 plus taxes per
night Single or Double on a first come, first serve basis. After that
date, reservations will be accepted locally by calling (501) 372-4371
only on a space availability basis and cannot be guaranteed at the
negotiated rate on a first come, first serve basis.
P. Allen Smith is an award-winning designer, gardening and lifestyle expert, the host of three television programs and the author of the Garden Home series of books. His Garden Home Retreat showcases ecofriendly and sustainable practices and the terraced garden rooms feature his twelve garden design principles.
This private tour of P. Allen Smith's Garden Home Retreat on Friday is a unique opportunity and includes lunch using seasonal ingredients along with a guided tour of P. Allen's home and terraced garden. Without a reserved tour such as this one, visitors are only allowed on specific Open Tour Dates.
Send in your registration ASAP as there are a limited number of spaces available for the P. Allen Smith tour. All reservations must be made before March 14. This tour will take place during the judging of the show, so judges and clerks will have to forego this experience.
