Lectures and Workshops

In the past, people would pay me not to talk. Now they pay me to talk, go figure. Well, I either know what I'm talking about or I have everyone, including myself, fooled.


2008 Schedule


Below you'll find my current schedule of lectures, workshops, horticultural events and plant sales for 2008 that are open to the public.
I've trimmed back my lecture schedule somewhat this year to spend more time here at the gardens. I've done this so that I can personally guide the many visitors I receive yearly through the gardens,  greenhouses and trial beds. Peak bloom for Hellebores is around the first week of April so I've left that block of time open for visitors. I still have certain dates available for programs,  so if your Garden Club,  Master Gardener Group,  Civic Organization etc would like to schedule a talk,  slide presentation,  propagation workshop or program,  send me your snailmail address and I'll send you my "Speaker's Portfolio". I have many exciting and unusual new plant offerings that we've been building stock on for the last year,  so expect regular mailings throughout the growing season.
