Home Gardens that Inspire - Part 1
by Peggy Hill - posted 02/22/16

I’m giving two talks at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens’ Spring Plant Sale. Here's the information from the Botanical Gardens.

 

Friday, April 15 at 1 p.m. Hot Plants…The Rest of the Story
Peggy has written 44 ‘Hot Plant’ articles for Alabama Gardener magazine, but the articles are very short and don’t have room for everything she wants to say. Also, many fabulous, new cultivars have been released since she started writing in 2011. Join Peggy for a lively Powerpoint presentation featuring some of her favorite Hot Plants, and get the rest of the story.

Saturday, April 16 at 1 p.m. Home Gardens That Inspire 
While attending Garden Writers Symposiums, Peggy toured some of the finest private gardens in the country. Whether you’re looking for ways to hide your ugly spaces, ways to showcase your garden strengths or ways to create garden rooms, this Powerpoint presentation has take-away ideas for everyone.

 

I thought it would be a fun preview if I posted some of the pictures from my talk on home gardens that inspire, and I’m starting with my favorite home garden of all time. In my last post, I showed you their amazing vegetable garden, but look at what else they had.

You probably noticed that I didn’t write any captions or make any comments about those pictures. That’s because I want you to come to Huntsville Botanical Gardens’ Spring Plant Sale and hear my talk at 1 p.m. on Saturday. I hope to see you there!
