Belvidere: Evolution of A Plantsman’s Garden

Tuesday, February 18 from 1:00 – 2:30 pm

Presented by Andrew Bunting, Vice President of Public Horticulture at the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society

Andrew Bunting will explore the 20-year development of his garden in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania. For the first 15 years of the development of the garden Andrew was Curator at the Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore College. Many parts of the garden reflect his passion for collecting unusual plants. This presentation will also cover the design process he used to create many garden spaces which today include a patio for growing tropicals in pots, a summer house converted from a detached garage, and a 4,000-square foot vegetable garden that he co-manages with his neighbor. Join us for this personal journey through the trial, tribulations, and success of creating a home garden.

Free for members of Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens and/or Woodlea Garden Club. $5 for non-members.
