For fifteen years, Horticulture has delivered a series of prestigious gardening symposia, in collaboration with leading botanic gardens and plant groups, to garden enthusiasts around the country. Thousands of participants have benefited from Horticulture's tradition of bringing together an international panel of experts to address the newest
design ideas, the most exciting plants, and the best in international trends in garden making.
The 2007 program promises to be livelier than ever. Speakers at the "Great Debate" include Joe Eck and Wayne Winterrowd, garden designers, authors and makers of the famous garden North Hill in Vermont; Mat Reese, Assistant Head Gardener at Great Dixter, the renowned English garden created by the late Christopher Lloyd; award winning Bay Area residential garden designer Penney Magrane, founder of Magrane Associates Landscape Design; and Nan Sinton, director of programs for Horticulture magazine.
"It's the classic dilemma faced by every gardener, whether they've been gardening for years or are starting their first garden," said Sinton, who is herself a hands-on gardener and experienced designer. "You'll learn how our speakers deal with the problem, and where their priorities lie when they discuss, declaim, and debate which comes first, the plants or the design-and show you how to put their ideas into practice in your own garden."
This full-day symposium is part of Horticulture's 2007 Symposia Series.
"The Great Garden Debate" will also travel to Portland, OR on Jan. 28; Denver, CO on Jan. 30;Glencoe, IL on Feb. 1; and Richmond, VA on Feb. 3.
