The Story of a Garden: Creating Coltsfoot

May 22, 2021 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Over the past sixteen years Juliet and John Hubbard have created an enchanting cottage garden around the colonial house that has been in the Hubbard family for over 100 years. Local scenery frames a series of perennial and vegetable gardens which are formal in composition but softened by the informal planting of old-fashioned roses, peonies, irises and day lilies. Further creating a sense of abundance are the drifts of self-sowing flowers. Follow Juliet as she shares her story of designing, creating and gardening at Coltsfoot.

Juliet Hubbard trained in horticulture at the New York Botanical Garden and went on to become Curator of their Native Plant Collection. In that position she lectured widely and wrote about wildflowers. Her garden has been on numerous garden tours and featured in magazines.

Limited seating. Reservations are required for all Barn Talks. Masks mandatory in the Barn.
