Foliage First: Boom Without The Bloom Lecture & Member Plant Dividend Distribution

May 9, 2018 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

UDBG Friends Members: Free; Nonmembers: $15

Please join Dan Benarcik as he looks at an often overlooked but vitally important part of the garden and landscape. If something should compromise the floral aspect of your garden, you should have a strong foliar background to carry and sustain the garden’s design. Shrubs, trees, herbaceous, and tropical plants are discussed in this garden study.

A native Delawarean and University of Delaware graduate, Dan Benarcik has worked at Mt. Cuba Center as the Woodspath Gardener, a Sales Representative at Imperial Nurseries, and now as a Horticulturist at Chanticleer Garden. For the past 25 years, he’s been part of the creative gardening team at Chanticleer not only in its seasonal displays, but also as part of the innovative team who conceives and manufactures workworkings, stone carvings, paintings, and metal works that one sees throughout the garden. At home, Dan is an avid gardener with his wife Peggy Anne Montgomery.
