A Riot of Foliage: Color, Pattern & Texture - Norwood Evening Garden Club - Presentation

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

On Tuesday, March 28, the Norwood Evening Garden Club will host Adam Wheeler, Propagation and Plant Development Manager at Broken Arrow Nursery in Hamden, CT. Wheeler will discuss the many colors, patterns and textures of foliage plants and how to use them in your garden. The meeting will be held at 6:45 p.m. at the Carriage House behind the First Baptist Church, 71 Bond Street, Norwood.

The public is invited to attend for a small donation. Refreshments will be served.

Wheeler's presentation will show that flowers don't have to be the stars of our gardens. "Flowers fade, but leaves last," he says. Join us to meet some of the best foliage plants available that can help your gardens hang together month after month.

Wheeler started work at Broken Arrow in 2004 after completing his BS degree in Urban Forestry and Landscape Horticulture at the University of Vermont. At the nursery, he manages plant propagation, container production, mail order and the acquisition and development of new plants. Wheeler is a recent recipient of the Young Nursery Professional Award from the New England Nursery Association. He loves to share his passion for plants through photography and educational outreach. As a result, he lectures widely on a variety of subjects and is also an adjunct lecturer at Naugatuck Valley Community College and the Berkshire Botanical Garden. In his spare time, Wheeler enjoys cultivating his eclectic collection of rare and unusual plants and competitive giant pumpkin growing.

A member of The Garden Club Federation of Massachusetts, New England Region, and National Garden Clubs, Inc., members of the Norwood Evening Garden Club have been providing education and public beautification in Norwood and its surrounding communities since 1996. The Club, open to novice and expert gardeners, draws its members from Norwood, Walpole, Westwood, Dedham, Medfield, Randolph, and Stoughton.
