I've just been reminded of another excellent program that will be happening in a few weeks in the Nashville area. For those of you within driving distance, it would be an outstanding opportunity to hear some world class plant gurus talking about the things they love the best. The lineup includes renowned plantsman, founder and former owner of Heronswood Nursery, Dan Hinkley, as well as Tennessee's own Carol Reese who is as knowledgable and as entertaining as they come. Rounding out the day are Dr. Richard Olsen from the U.S. National Arboretum and Dr. Andrew Bell from the Chicago Botanic Garden, both extraordinary plantsmen and at the forefront of new plant introductions and coming trends in the world of horticulture.
The stars really aligned to get this group of people under one roof at the same time, so if you're close by, you really ought to try to make it! You can find registration information on the website of the Professional Landscape Association of Nashville Tennessee (P.L.A.N.T.) at www.landscapenashville.org. Just click on the "News & Events" button and it will take you to the correct page! Hope to see as many of you there as possible!
