Travels of a Young Gardener

Monday, May 18th, 2009, 7 – 9 pm

A general overview of my travels as a “NGG” (next generation gardener) and the plants that made it special. From my expeditions and garden visits in China to nursery hopping around the Pacific Northwest, come prepared to salivate over extraordinary plants through slides and potted specimens that will be raffled off and also offered for sale. This is one lecture not to be missed!
