Betscher Peonies/Orchard

Denver123August 13, 2012

Hi,

I am wanting information, pictures or seeds related to the Carl Betscher Orchard in Dover, Ohio.

Carl Betscher was a well known exoert of Peonis @ the turn of the century. He had a home and orchard/garden in Dover, Ohio. He buillt a house there in 1910 & his brother buit one beside Carl's that same year. My daughter bought the brother's home this summer and is remoldling it.

As a house warming present I would really like to obtain a picture of the house and or garden or seeds that are decendents of Betscher plants. Any help would be appreciated. I can be contacted by email
