Description

Presented by Bob Stamper, Past President of VFARS, Retired Professor of Biology

This lecture will explore the use of texture, form and color in the garden to make a garden more interesting. It examines plant attributes and what should be considered when adding a new plant to the garden or in redoing a garden. Included are discussions of blooming times, flower forms, plant growth habits, garden balance, symmetry, scale and proportion, background plantings, repetition, variety, and basics of color and its use. Bob has been gardening for over 50 years and recently moved from his four acre garden in Zionsville, PA. He has been a teacher for almost 60 years and recently retired from Muhlenberg College. He has been president of the Valley Forge Rhododendron Society and an active member of the Rock Garden Society and Emmaus Garden Club for many years.

FREE of charge. All are welcome.
