Event description

Description

Join intrepid plant explorer, passionate nurseryman and garden designer Dan Hinkley as he reveals his process for designing his latest endeavor, The Gardens of Windcliff.

Dan and partner Robert Jones are famous for Heronswood, a nursery and garden in Kingston, Washington they created and ran for over 20 years. For their new garden located on 250’ of south facing bluff overlooking Puget Sound, Hinkley has assembled a palette of Mediterranean and Southern Hemisphere plants arranged in a naturalistic style. Hinkley’s presentation will take us through the development of the garden from inspiration to realization, including a discussion of plants that will translate to our San Francisco Bay Area gardens.

Dan Hinkley is an in-demand horticultural lecturer and nationally recognized plant expert, with his own line of plants available from Monrovia Nursery, this talk is not one to miss!


Dan Hinkley, born in the zone 4 highlands of North Central Michigan, has had a lifelong interest in all types of plants from trees to edibles, leading him to receive his B.S. in Ornamental Horticulture and Horticulture Education from Michigan State University in 1976, and his M.S. in Urban Horticulture from the University of Washington in 1985.

In 1987, while teaching horticulture at Edmonds Community College north of Seattle, he and his partner, Robert L. Jones, began Heronswood Nursery, near Kingston, WA. Devoted to introducing rare and unusual plants to gardeners of North America, this endeavor has led Hinkley into the wilds of China, South and Central America, Mexico, New Zealand, South Africa, Nepal, Vietnam, Taiwan, Sikkim, Bhutan, Tasmania and Canada numerous times a year for the past 22 years.

Dan Hinkley currently resides in Indianola, WA where he is in the process of realizing his latest endeavor, the Gardens of Windcliff. Among many and varied garden spaces the project includes a large greenhouse, raised beds, and a generous potager for research in edibles.
