In this New England Wildflower Society lecture Bill Cullina uses his latest book, Understanding Perennials as a starting point and tackles the thorny subject of garden design in a completely different way. In this fun and information-filled talk, he explores such things as the reasons for big leaves, variegation, red foliage and flowers and ways to create more satisfying designs without breaking the budget. He looks at life beyond the color wheel, the importance of healthy soil and reveals some of his best horticultural secrets while weaving together aesthetics, psychology, botany, and ecology into a fascinating one hour ride. It is a talk that beginning gardeners as well as seasoned pros will both learn from and enjoy. Bill will be available to sign books after the lecture.
