Our first official blog post is an exciting one!

Today we hosted the renowned Head Gardener of Great Dixter House in the United Kingdom, Fergus Garrett. Great Dixter is the family home of gardener and garden writer Christopher Lloyd with a historic house and expansive gardens. Visit  http://www.greatdixter.co.uk to see this wonderful garden. We have Christopher Lloyd’s books in our library, e-mail [email protected] for more information.

A group of lucky participants listened to Mr. Garrett’s presentation about bulbs today and we are sure they enjoyed his presentation. The talk was organized by the Hardy Plant Group. Our Couvelier Pavilion was a natural fit for this presentation. Lunch at Charlotte and the Quail with a tour of the gardens preceded the talk – a great outing for anyone.

Look for more information about this talk in the April edition of the E-News.

We will be doing regular blog posts from behind the scenes at the Gardens at HCP regularly so check back soon!
