The Roaring 20's

Our 2022 theme echoed the new decade - flappers, speakeasies, swing and jazz - Al Capone and Bonnie and Clyde...
Fun was had by all!

Tim has written two books on growing hydrangeas in our climate and he will share varieties and methods to succeed.

Noah will walk us through the production of hostas from liner to consumer plant… like Ford’s assembly line, the process is fascinating. 

John Totten & Linda Kramer 
Appalachian Forests; Cultivating Place

Stretching over 2000 miles from Newfoundland to Alabama, the Appalachian Mountain chain is one of the longest, oldest and most botanically diverse on Earth. These botanical riches have been sought after for centuries by plant explorers and including them in your woodland garden can add excitement and a sense of place.
