Tower Hill Botanic Garden welcomes Page Dickey, editor of Outstanding American Gardens, on Sunday, February 21 from 1 – 2. This beautiful book showcases fifty stunning public and private gardens from coast to coast featured by the Garden Conservancy since 1989. Historic, modernist, traditional, cottage seaside, exotic, tropical, classic Southern, farmhouse, prison, organic and xeric – all are among the many types of gardens exquisitely photographed and described.
Page Dickey has been gardening passionately since her early twenties. She writes about gardening, garden design, and America’s gardens for House and Garden, House Beautiful, Horticulture, Elle DÃ©cor, Fine Gardening, Garden Design, and other publications. She is the author of several books, including Gardens in the Spirit of Place, Breaking Ground, and Inside Out. Her first book, Duck Hill Journal, and her most recent, Embroidered Ground, are about Duck Hill in New York, where she lived and gardened for thirty years. Page cofounded the Open Days program in 1995 and has served on the board of directors of the Garden Conservancy since 2004. She also serves on the boards of Stonecrop, Frank Cabot’s garden in Cold Spring, NY, and Hollister House Garden in Washington, CT.
