Instructor: Gail Read
Often, gardeners think they must choose between archetypes of the wild, native plant garden and the formal, classic garden, but there are ecologically friendly ways to create an elegant effect. Explore the extensive grounds at historic Blithewold, which includes an arboretum, cutting garden, nursery, and meadow. On this tour we discuss the delicate balance of values involved in managing a historic landscape, and teach you different ways to replicate the visual sophistication of these gardens using native plants.
