Join Nicholas Staddon for an Englishman’s view of the New American Garden. “Gardens all over the United States are undergoing a measure of change” bubbles Nicholas. “No more so then here in Southern California.” He will provide us with a unique overview of new plant exploration not only here in the United States but overseas as well. Get a peek at the 2018 Chelsea Flower Show and some of the recent highlights. He will also cover the importance of the edible garden, and the next step of integrating those plants in to an existing landscape. And finally a hand-picked selection of new and underused plants for our region. This event is co-sponsored by the UCLA Extension Horticulture & Gardening program. This event is free, please RSVP.
