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.


2009 Schedule

Below you'll find my current schedule of lectures, workshops, horticultural events and plant sales for 2009 that are open to the public, most confirmed, some tentative. There are also several not listed that are private clubs, groups and societies.

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 each year through the gardens, greenhouses and trial beds. Peak bloom for Hellebores is usually the first couple weeks of April so I've left that block of time open for guests. Even though I call that time period "The Peak", they still look great for a long period of time before and after that. And the southeast section of the gardens are in themselves six acres of nothing but Hellebores, well over 100,000 mature blooming plants. It's quite an astounding sight to behold.

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.
