2020 Winter Seminar Series:
The Beauty of Bulbs
Saturday, February 1 – 11:00 am
Tulips and Daffodils are generally familiar plants. What about winter aconite, autumn crocus, magic lily? Bulbs add pizzazz, foliage and flower color, textures and often some very unique features to our gardens. From hardy to tropical, fragrant to floriferous, sun to shade, spring to fall, explore the (almost) year-round additions bulbs can add to just about any garden.

Secrest Arboretum: A Century of Beauty & Utility
Saturday, February 8 – 11:00 am
In continuous use since 1901, Secrest Arboretum has evolved from its early days as a forestry research station to a diverse public garden serving students, researchers, the horticulture industry, and the public. This presentation will trace the events and trends that have shaped Secrest’s character and purpose over the last century. We will also take a look at some recent projects, new initiatives, and long-range plans to ensure that the Arboretum is beautiful, useful, and sustainable for generations to come.
