We enjoyed a box lunch again as we head towards Planting Fields Arboretum Historic State Park. Full of specimen trees, glasshouses full of tropicals, a dazzling dahlia garden and even a Synoptic Garden - an A to Z planting of trees and shrubs that grow well in this area.

Back to the hotel for some more sessions, then it was time for the Awards reception and banquet. This is always a fun time as well because a lot of these people you know and are happy for them. A lovely ending for the symposium it self but it is not over for you, as I stayed on an extra day to take part in an optional tour to New York City and Brooklyn .. .this to follow.
