The Talbot County Garden Club is hosting its biannual symposium "Swing into Spring" on April 23rd. The all-day affair includes a continental breakfast, a farm to table lunch, fabulous boutiques and of course amazing and inspiring speakers.
The first speaker is award-winning gardener and author, Stephanie Cohen, also known as the Perennial Diva. She will present a vibrant and informative talk on "New and Underused Perennials." Stephanie was the founder and director of the Landscape Arboretum at Temple University in Ambler, Pa. and she is a contributing editor for "Fine Gardening" magazine.
Following Stephanie are four very talented members of the TCGC, including Boots Michalak, Bobbie Brittingham and Ingrid Blanton, who will dazzle you with their designs. Each design will be one that all everyone will be able to recreate at home.
Last but not least is renowned floral designer Jennie Love, a remarkable woman who has a sustainable 2-acre cut flower flower farm and design studio in Philadelphia. She is the passionate and creative force behind Love 'n Fresh Flowers and will certainly wow everyone with her positive, heartfelt, down-to-earth energy and design acumen.
