ROCK GARDENING: REIMAGINING A CLASSIC STYLE FOR TODAY’S GARDEN

May 10 @ 7:00 pm

Free

Rock gardening —the art of growing alpines and other miniature plants in the company of rocks in order to recreate the look of a rugged mountaintop—has been surging in popularity. Time and space constraints, chronic periods of drought, and a trend toward architectural plants are just a few of the reasons for the increased interest. Garden designer and author, Joseph Tychonievich, brings this traditional style to a new generation of gardeners for the Essex Library community on May 10 at 7 p.m. on Zoom. His illustrated talk will include a survey of gorgeous rock gardens from around the world, the techniques and methods specific to creating and maintaining a rock garden, and profiles of the top rock garden plants.

Joseph Tychonievich is a life-long lover of plants and gardening. He got his degree in horticulture from Ohio State University and went on to work for specialty rare plant nurseries in Japan and Michigan. Joseph is the author of several books including The Comic Book Guide to Growing Food: Step-by-Step Vegetable Gardening for Everyone and Rock Gardening: Reimagining a Classic Style. He is a regular contributor to gardening magazines like Fine Gardening, and is the editor of the North American Rock Garden Society quarterly journal.

This Zoom event is free and open to the public. Registration is required. For more information or to register, please call 860-767-1560 or see: https://www.youressexlibrary.org/adult-services/adults-featured-events/
