The Silver Spring Garden Club invites you to our November 2019 meeting for a talk on:
What Can We Learn from British Gardens?
Americans have been entranced by British gardens for as long as they’ve been creating their own – but what is it exactly that makes the British garden so revered? Perhaps more importantly, what can British gardens and gardeners teach us in our own gardens? Using ten key concepts gleaned from a lifetime of extensive travel and study in the UK, Marianne illustrates the reasons why we might want to keep paying attention to our cousins overseas.
Our speaker, Marianne Willburn, is the garden columnist for The Frederick News Post, author and Master Gardener with over two decades of experience gardening in places as diverse as Southern California, England, and the Mid-Atlantic. She is a California native, but has lived in a rural area of the DC Metro area for many years.
She is the author of Big Dreams, Small Garden: A Guide to Creating Something Extraordinary in Your Ordinary Space, and has won several national awards for her popular column and blog. Recently she has begun conducting garden tours to the United Kingdom through CarexTours, a Silver Spring-based tour company dedicated to exploring great public and private gardens in a small group experience.
