Container Counsel: Tips and Tricks for Creating Successful Container Plantings

May 28 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Contained plantings offer the opportunity to introduce focal points of foliage and flowers where there is no ground space, and are particularly useful around a pool, on a terrace, or flanking an entranceway. Interest in potted plantings remains strong even after many years of popularity, but choosing an appropriate container, assembling beautiful and compatible combinations, and avoiding design clichés can be challenging. Join Robert Clyde Anderson for an opinionated and informative illustrated talk based on his years of experience as a designer and in the retail gardening business.

Robert Clyde Anderson is a garden designer, consultant and writer who found his way to the Hudson Valley after a New York City career in illustration and book design. A native of Louisiana and a lifelong gardener, he has designed and maintained gardens in Columbia County as well as working in area nurseries. Robert makes his home in Stuyvesant, NY, where he maintains a two acre “laboratory” garden that includes shrub borders, a sunny terraced xeric garden, a shady wooded streamside area, a moist meadow area, a kitchen garden and a small flock of chickens.

Advance reservation is suggested. Hollister House will follow all state and local guidelines for Covid-19 at our events.
