Are you an eclectic gardener whose passion for plants takes you in diverse directions? Do environmental concerns make you wonder how a garden can successfully mix sustainable natives with exotic plants from outside our region?
Then attend the 15th annual EcoSavvy Symposium at Green Spring Gardens on Saturday, February 16. “The Balanced Garden: How to meld beautiful and sustainable natives with favorites from around the world” is a half-day program from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Symposium speakers include native landscape designer, lecturer, and photographer Colston Burrell and Keith Tomlinson, the manager of NOVA’s Meadowlark Botanical Garden in Vienna.
Burrell will present insights for balancing natives, cultivars and exotics in the home garden. Tomlinson will demonstrate how this balance is achieved in a public garden.
