Kerry Mendez (see above) emailed me briefly about the Great Gardens and Landscaping Symposium that she has organized for the sixth year in a row. Since it is focused on gardening with cold hardy plants, I thought it was worth passing on to my readers.
Besides Kerry herself, Paul Tukey, Tara Dillard, and Dr. Mark Starrett will be speaking over the course of two days (which includes the pre-symposium workshop). The workshop and symposium will be held April 24-25, 2009 at the Mirror Lake Inn and Resort at Lake Placid, NY. Topics range from new perennial introductions to organic lawn care and award-winning cold hardy woody plants.
Registrations are still being accepted, but the symposium has sold out the last two years, so don’t wait until the last minute to finalize your plans to attend.
