The Autumn Garden: Selecting Trees & Shrubs with Late Season Appeal and UDBG Friends Members Plant Dividend giveaway

UDBG Friends: Free; Nonmembers: $15 (members should still register to reserve your seat)

The autumn season is a great time to garden. While autumn usually represents a time of harvest and putting the garden to rest, many landscapes are bursting with color. Join Vincent Simeone as he offers practical information on how to garden using woody plants that possess interesting fall foliage, fruit, and bark interest. Plants ideal for the home landscape will be highlighted.

Vincent Simeone has worked in the horticultural field for over 27 years. He received his BS in Ornamental Horticulture from the University of Georgia, studying under Drs. Michael Dirr and Allan Armitage. Vincent has specialized expertise in woody plants and is an experienced lecturer throughout the country. For the past 23 years, Vincent has worked in public horticulture at Planting Fields Arboretum State Historic Park in New York where he is the Director. He has published five books: Grow More With Less: Sustainable Garden Methods, Great Flowering Landscape Shrubs, Great Flowering Landscape Trees, The Wonders of the Winter Landscape, and Great Landscape Evergreens, with a sixth book on the way.
