Gardening expert Gordon Hayward will present "The Uses of Stone in the Garden" on Tuesday, Oct. 8.
Co-hosted by the Canton Public Library and the Cherry Brook Garden Club, the program takes place at 7 p.m. in Room F at the Canton Community Center. The public is encouraged to attend.
"If you're a gardener and you live in New England, you know about stone in the garden," said Garden Club member Jane Hoben. "I sometimes think it's my most predictable crop. And who better to tell us about making the best and most beautiful use of stone than Gordon Hayward?"
Registration is requested by calling the library at (860) 693-5800. Hayward’s books will be available for sale and signing.
Hayward grew up on his family’s farm in New Hartford and has been designing gardens professionally from his home in southern Vermont since 1985 with particular emphasis on gardens in New England. He is also a nationally recognized garden writer and lecturer.
He wrote for Horticulture Magazine for 25 years and lectured with the magazine on nine multi-city lecture tours across America. This is his third time speaking at a Cherry Brook Garden Club meeting! During this talk, garden designer Gordon Hayward will talk about the many creative as well as practical roles stones can play to give a garden a feeling of timelessness, structure, and solidity.
He will cover both the aesthetics of stone as well as the practical concerns about the proper way to lay and set stone in the garden. To learn more about Gordon Hayward check out his website: http://www.haywardgardens.com.
