The Allure of Naturalism Talk

08:00 PM - 10:00 PM

The Silver Spring Garden Club invites you to our November 2017 meeting featuring "The Allure of Naturalism" Talk.

Gardeners around the world are enthusiastically embracing naturalistic planting. Taking its cue from the way plants grow in the wild, this planting style focuses on arrangements of perennials and grasses to achieve an artful spontaneity. In this talk, Carolyn Mullet will lead you to an understanding of what naturalism is and then suggest simple steps you can take to introduce this style to your garden. The talk will be illustrated with photos taken on Carolyn’s garden tours to Europe.
