"Exploring Southern Gardens 2001"
Southern Garden Symposium & Workshops
October 19 & 20, 2001
St. Francisville, Louisiana
9:15 Welcome and Introductions - Anne M. Spafford, ASLA, Master of Proceedings.
9:30 Garden Design for Easier Maintenance - Edward C. Martin, Jr., FASLA. Any garden design development will be only as effective as the maintenance program for it. The time to seriously consider landscape maintenance is the time when the garden is planned and before it is constructed and planted. Learn how to make the most of grading and drainage, architectural details, plant selections, and living and on-living ground covers.
10:45 Plant Introduction in 19th Century New Orleans Gardens - With growing interest IN garden history has come a corresponding interest in knowing what plants are appropriate for historic gardens. Many of us think of "historic plants" as those in our grandmothers' gardens, but that doesn't necessarily mean they were common in the 19th century. Landscape architect, garden historian, and writer Lake Douglas digs up some interesting information as he explores plant introductions in 19th century New Orleans gardens.
11:30 Bulletproof Flowers for the South - You mean there are plants that actually resist heat and humidity?!? Learn a whole new palette of flowers and foliage plants that do just that as tested by garden expert Jim Wilson of Victory Garden and HGTV fame.
12:15 Lunch at Hemingbough
3:00 Afternoon Tea: Evergreenzine, Home of Dr. and Mrs. Kenneth Blue, Ferdinand St.
