The Making of a Meadow Garden - The Garden Conservancy - Lecture

Sunday, June 02, 2019

The Garden Conservancy Open Days Program presents The Making of a Meadow Garden at 4 p.m. In deciding to create a meadow garden, Bruce Lockhart enlisted the aid of designer Gordon Hayward and gave him two directives: look to the work of Piet Oudolf and create a pollinator-friendly habitat as a companion to the orchard nearby.

In 2012 Gordon arrived to lay out thousands upon thousands of meadow plants and brought help, nurserywoman and garden designer Helen ODonnell who has been part of this strong collaboration ever since.

In this behind-the-scenes look at the creation and management of a visually striking meadow that is alight with more beneficial insects every year, Bruce and Helen will share techniques, challenges, successes, and, of course, favorite plants.

Advance registration is required and space is limited, $30 Garden Conservancy members; $40 nonmembers.
