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.
