Saturday, October 23, 10:00 am – 12:00 noon – Ornamental Grasses with Robert Herman

The stature, movement and rustling of grasses make them a unique group of plants for the garden. Join horticulturist and educator Rob Herman at the Berkshire Botanical Garden in Stockbridge on Saturday, October 23, from 10 – noon, to discover the reasons for using grasses, how to place them and how to select the right grasses for any garden. Explore the beautiful grasses, some known and some relatively unknown, for every habitat from sunny, dry locations to wet shady spots. This program is designed for both gardeners new to gardening with grass as well as experts in the field.
