Friends of the Arboretum Lecture

"Winter Interest in the Garden"
Pam Beck, Garden Writer, Lecturer, and Photographer

  • Sunday, February 9, 2003 – 1:00 pm2:00 pm

Join us for this exciting lecture to learn more about this overlooked season for gardening and the plants that shine during winter. Gardeners in the Southeast are fortunate to be able to garden every month of the year. Our exceptionally mild winters offer opportunities to landscape with plants for continuous interest, many blooming during our coldest months. Our pallet is broad and exciting; and for us, gardening does not stop.
