Secchia Garden Lecture:
David Culp Sold Out

April 24, 2018 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

This spring, we’re thrilled to welcome the recipient of the Distinguished Garden Award from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society as our Secchia Garden Master Lecturer. David Culp has cultivated a passion for plants into a celebrated career as an award-winning author, Longwood Gardens instructor, sought-after lecturer and developer of the Brandywine Hybrid strain of hellebores, named for his charming Brandywine Cottage nestled in the rolling hills of eastern Pennsylvania.

Join us for a one-night-only, intimate look into Culp’s “layered garden,” a majestic menagerie of color, shape and texture that fluidly evolves and flourishes all year long. Learn how to create this innovative garden design, which combines an intriguing interplay of plant species that peak in layers of visual interest in all four seasons—the layered garden never sleeps.

 Named “Best Overall Book” by the Garden Writers Association, The Layered Garden is Culp’s defining work. Following the lecture, copies of this best-seller will be available for sale and signing by the author.
