For our morning program, Ed Bowen of Opus Nursery in Rhode Island will present "Never Trust a Nurseryman!" He will bring plants from his nursery for sale (there will not be a members' sale this month, however).

At 1:00 p.m., Ed will join John Gwynne and Mikel Folcarelli of Sakonnet Garden in a joint presentation for our chapter and the Berkshire Botanical Garden called "One Garden, Three Perspectives -- Design vs. Plants."   

 

Their lively discussion will cover the choice plants and unusual design concepts behind the well-known Sakonnet Garden in Little Compton, RI. Ed Bowen is owner of Opus Nursery, a select nursery in Little Compton, RI that specializes in unusual perennials. Sakonnet Garden, the long-term project of John Gwynne and Mikel Folcarelli, is an intimate garden surrounded by native coastal fields.
