Literature into Art: Books That Changed the Way We Garden

Lecture at the Bellevue Botanical Garden. In today’s fast paced information age, it is hard to imagine a time when gardeners relied on books rather than YouTube videos for inspiration and practical advice. In this lecture, Colston Burrell examines the shifting roles that gardens have played in our culture, from Victorian bedding schemes to outdoor living rooms, and highlights some seminal books that changed the way we envision, design, plant and maintain outdoor spaces.

Cost:  $5.00 for Bellevue Botanical Garden Society Members; $15.00 Non-members.
