Plant-hunting in the American West: How Garden Plants are Domesticated
Thursday, February 16, 7:30 p.m.
Kenton Seth
Kenton lives in his high desert hometown of Grand Junction, Colorado, where he enjoys all things gardening. After retiring as head of horticulture for Western Colorado Botanical Gardens, he pursued plant-related international travel, falling in love with crevice gardens in the process. After returning to the United States he began work in the Denver horticultural scene, starting
his own company, Paintbrush Gardens, which installs non-irrigated and xeric landscapes incorporating rock and crevice gardening. Kenton has written for many horticultural publications,
including Horticulture magazine and Rock Garden Quarterly, and blogs at kentonjseth.blogspot.ca

Clematis: The Genus of Diversity
Thursday, March 9, 7:30 p.m.
Deborah Hardwick
Deborah has spent the last 15 years studying, collecting, growing, and hybridizing clematis. Her garden contains more than 1,300 registered and species clematis in addition to her nursery with hundreds of proprietary hybrids. Deborah describes her avocation as “a single genus focus and relentless obsession to learn, network, collect and share knowledge about clematis.” Through a large
collection of photographs, Deborah will demonstrate the vast diversity in foliage, form, colour and habit of clematis. She will also dispense planting and culture advice garnered from a decade and half spent obsessing over this beloved plant.

    I have a note that there is a workshop on Oct 18/16, called “Creating a Roof Garden” with James & Mary McLean, hosted by the Milne House Garden Club. I know this workshop was offered April 21/15, but I have a note from somewhere that it is being offered again on Oct 18/16. I can’t find MIlnehousegardenclub.org.
    Anybody know anything please?
