The New Native Cottage Garden: Update the Classic Cottage Garden with Bold, Contemporary Designs! with Thomas Rainer

Thursday, May 9, 2013 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Location TBD. $15 Friends of the Garden/$20 general public. Call Stephanie at 540-231-5970 to register by phone or email vtgarden@vt.edu.

It's time to take a fresh look at the cottage garden. This traditionally British form can be easily adapted for American gardens using American plants. The charming jumble of perennials and shrubs can be a truly sustainable and beautiful model for small gardens. American gardeners can have all the advantages of a cottage garden--the romantic appeal, the low maintenance, and the colorful charm of it all--with a wildlife friendly native mix. Thomas will share tips for designing a contemporary cottage garden, including his picks of native plants best suited for cottage gardens.

Thomas Ranier is a Landscape Architect, writer, and teacher. You can find more about Thomas at his award-winning blog, "Grounded Design."
