Naturalistic Planting on a Domestic Scale

Date/Time

Sep 14, 2019
10:00 AM until 12:00 PM

Description

Developments in ecology and environmental science over the last thirty years have revolutionized the way perennials are used worldwide. Large-scale projects like the High Line in New York are inspiring examples of this approach, but how does the average gardener take these big ideas and translate them into a domestic scale that is manageable in terms of both labor and expense? Horticulturist Robert Clyde Anderson will share practical techniques he has successfully adopted and developed in his two-acre garden-cum-laboratory. Topics will include site selection and preparation; plant material sources and choices; installation tips; and seasonal care. The focus will be on a three-phase wet meadow planting with sections demonstrating preparation, post-installation, and mature plantings. Registration required; space is limited.
