Jeff Mason - Learning From the Great Gardens of England

February 26, 2018 Meeting

Meetings are held at the Bonar-Parkdale Presbyterian Church, 250 Dunn Avenue, just south of Queen Street West. Arrive after 6:30pm and enjoy coffee and cookies while you check out the Hort library, chat, and ask questions!

At our February meeting, Jeff Mason promises to share what he’s discovered (and re-discovered) on a garden tour to the fabled gardens of England. From a long wish list Jeff and his much-travelled mother, Marjorie, created an itinerary of gardens he’d only ever seen in books or online. He will share photos of what his eyes delighted in: the grandeur of the Sissinghurst Castle Garden; the exuberance of Great Dixter and the thoughtfulness of Beth Chatto’s Garden. What plants did he see? What did he learn about garden design? How is he incorporating these in the ever-changing Mason House Gardens — and how might we? Don’t miss this opportunity as you order seeds and plants for the coming gardening season and finalize your own garden plans!
