‘Structure and Ornament in the Garden’ – CT Horticultural Society (live and Zoom)

April 28, 2022 • 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

A hallmark of great garden design is definition—the boundaries, vertical accents, focal points, and embellishments composed of non-living elements that shape both the garden and our experience of it. Join Amy Ziffer for a look at the importance of often overlooked functional and ornamental design details in her talk entitled “Structure and Ornament in the Garden”.

Amy Ziffer started A Shady Lady Garden Design in 1998 in order to help residential clients create beautiful, functional ornamental landscapes that solve problems without sacrificing ecological sensitivity. She is the author of Northeast Shade Gardening, which will be released this spring from Comstock Publishing Associates, an imprint of Cornell University Press. She frequently lectures and teaches about gardening across the Northeast.

This event is in person and live via Zoom. Free for members; $10 for non-members
