Many people have asked when we will be opening the garden to the public this year.
The sad news is, we won’t. This summer we are working on various garden projects that need time to settle in. But I hope that in 2019 we will have one — or maybe two — open garden days.
Many people have also asked about where and when I’ll be speaking. Coming up on July 27, I’ll be in Kingston, Ontario, as the keynote speaker for the Ontario Horticultural Society’s annual meeting. September sees me in England, where I’ll be touring gardens in East Anglia and the Cotswolds with a group of Canadian and American gardeners.
In January, I’ll be speaking in Ottawa, then in Boston and vicinity in February and April, and in the Eastern Townships in May.
Personally, I am very happy with my newest presentation, Learning to Look: the Art of Garden Observation. In this talk I look at some often neglected points about how to really see what works and what doesn’t in a garden, and how to apply the ideas at home.
