Beyond Crabapples - The Four Season Beauty of Ornamental Trees

On Saturday May 4, 2019 ..

Event Time 8:00 am - 9:30 am

Surround yourself with the beauty of small, ornamental trees. In this illustrated talk, Elisabeth Cary will teach us how this underutilized group of plants can play an important part in the four season garden offering flowers, fruit, foliage and structure. These small trees can have a role in the mixed border, as a focal point to brighten a dark corner or as a canopy to brighten a dark corner. Learn about the many species available for the zone 5 garden and explore how to select, site, and cultivate this great group of plants.

Elisabeth Cary, former Director of Education at Berkshire Botanical Garden has been gardening for over 30 years. She is currently developing Cooper Hill Farm, a micro flower farm in Sheffield, MA.
