March 14, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
A lecture and reception sponsored by the Maymont CouncilPresented by Peggy Singlemann, Director of Park Operations & HorticultureThe Dooleys’ Gilded Age landscape demonstrates a range of styles and a variety of plant materials, many newly available in the late 19th century when gardeners considered the world to be at their fingertips through mail order catalogs. Today, sources for plant materials are unlimited thanks to the internet. Discover how, in the course of a century, the plants we buy for our gardens have changed and why. Peggy Singlemann, Maymont’s Director of Park Operations and Horticulture and host of WCVE’s “Virginia Home Grown,” shares her decades-long research, experience and observations in a beautifully illustrated talk. A reception follows the lecture.
