August 2016 The Dirt on Gert

Monday, August 1 from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.

Join Reiman Gardens’ Horticulturist Jessie Liebenguth for a special presentation about the work of Gertrude Jekyll, a significant late 19th century horticulturist whose Arts & Crafts approach to garden design has made a lasting impression on gardeners the world over.

Also a talented painter, photographer, writer, and craftswoman, her attention to detail and color changed the face of home and professional gardening with a focus on individual attention to plant color, culture, and foliage.

Learn about her work and legacy through the lens of Jessie’s own design of the Campanile Garden display, Colour & the Cottage Garden, in bloom this summer at Reiman Gardens.
