2017 Spring Benefit

MARTA McDOWELL

“New Ideas from English Gardens”

You know Marta from her fascinating lecture on “All the President’s Gardens”. Now she’ll show us how to wake up our garden beds and borders with fresh ideas from across the pond. This lecture takes a peek at design techniques and plant combinations from contemporary gardens as different as the Eden Project and the Thames Barrier Park. Take inspiration from new designers at the Chelsea Flower Show as well as horticulturists responsible for breathing new life into historic gardens like Great Dixter.
