Gardening with a Generous Nature with Author Kris Green, Blithewold Horticulturist & Garden Blogger

WHEN: Thursday, May 08, 2014 at 6:00PM - 7:30PM
WHERE: Blithewold Mansion

You shouldn’t have to spend the earth or quit your day job (unless you want to) to grow a great garden. Learn to appreciate some of nature’s worthiest opportunists and then develop an opportunistic streak yourself. Welcome the self-sowers—they plant themselves! Let spreaders fill your garden’s gaps but practice the fine art of editorial control. Splurge on tender perennials. Your investment will pay off in late-season color for years to come when you carefully overwinter them. Join Blithewold horticulturist and garden blogger Kris Green as she presents her new book Plantiful: Start Small, Grow Big with 150 Plants That Spread, Self-Sow, and Overwinter. She will also share her favorite plants, tips, and tools for growing an abundant and colorful garden year-round.

Books will be available for sale and signing after the lecture, or click here to purchase one now!

Refreshments will be served.

  • Maple candy (Nov 14, '14)
    One day last week it seemed as if the switch that turns on the Japanese maples was flipped. We all noticed it. And I think we all tried to burn their color on our retinas (and camera sensors) in an attempt to hold us over for winter. And evidently, winter arrived this morning. We weren’t […]
