In recognition of the contributions of Lisina and Frank Hoch, the Polly Hill Arboretum in West Tisbury has established an annual lecture in their honor focusing on great American gardens. They are pleased to welcome William (Bill) Thomas, director of Chanticleer, located in Wayne, Pennsylvania as the inaugural speaker on Wednesday, July 18, beginning at 7:30 pm. Chanticleer, a pleasure garden, is the most creative garden in America. The garden is visually and sensually exciting; filled with artistic spaces full of inspiring plant combinations, magnificent container plantings, and the artistry of the garden’s staff from woodworking to stone carving to metalworking. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how this spectacular garden continues to evolve. $10/$5 for PHA members. Generously sponsored by Heather Gardens. Register at www.pollyhillarboretum.org.
