C. L. Fornari: Gardens of Inspiration and Insight


Wednesday, March 13, at 1:00–2:30PM

Blithewold and the Bristol Garden Club welcome C. L. Fornari, who will present a lavishly illustrated talk that celebrates how gardens stimulate our creativity, our sense of humor, and even our physical well-being. Learn how a garden nourishes our spirituality and creates connections to other people and the planet. Although this talk is appropriate for any audience, it will especially resonate with intermediate and advanced gardeners.

C. L. Fornari is a self-described out-of-control plant person. She is a garden consultant and the host of GardenLine, a weekly call-in program on WXTK radio. In addition to speaking about gardening, she is the author of several gardening books and many articles, including A Garden Lover’s Martha’s Vineyard, A Garden Lover’s Cape Cod, and Your Garden Shouldn’t Make You Crazy! She is also the resident plant expert at Hyannis Country Garden, a garden center on Cape Cod. To learn more about C. L. Fornari, visit her website at www.gardenlady.com

Refreshments and a book signing will follow the presentation.

  • Holiday houseplants (Dec 12, '14)
    Given how many wonderful winter-blooming houseplants there are in the world, I find it sort of astonishing that poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima) is listed as the best selling houseplant in the US and Canada. But I suppose that fact must be chalked up to a couple things: Poinsettia are festive and fun. What’s not to love about […]
  • Goodnight gardens (Dec 05, '14)
    After some festive weeks spent preparing for our Christmas display and this week’s wreath workshops, it was pure pleasure to be out in the gardens again. Despite the chill that crept into fingers and toes. Earlier this fall we got a jump on what’s commonly known as “putting the gardens to bed”. — I must have already […]
