Thursday, July 18, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm – Meadow Gardening at its Very Best

This Berkshire Botanical Garden sponsored field study will give participants an in-depth look at an exceptional ten-year-old New England meadow, designed by meadow expert Larry Weaner. Tour this amazing 40-acre upland meadow at the height of its bloom with head gardener Deb Munson and learn about planting, maintenance, plant selection, weed control and more. Additionally, tour the beautiful formal gardens surrounding this Georgian home and enjoy spectacular views of the northwest corner of Connecticut. The owner will make a presentation on the development of the garden and has graciously invited participants to picnic on the lawns of this exceptional estate. A mere 40-minute drive from Berkshire Botanical Garden, this extraordinary horticultural gem is a wonderful place to spend a summer morning.
