Hip & Cool Plants

by Mary Palmer Dargan

Dovecote’s in full bloom with a full host of programs and presentations.

Our seventh season of the Garden Talk Salon resumes its summer schedule at 10:00 A.M. Friday, June 14, with “Hip and Cool Plants,” a tour and horticultural discussion with Mary Palmer Dargan.

These are plants suitable for Mountain Chic Gardens, perfect for the Plateau. It will include shrubs, trees, evergreens, perennials – you name it, we’ll talk about it! We will meet at Dovecote Barn and then wander on over to Chattooga Gardens.

On June 29 (which is a Saturday – please note the date change), Edmund Taylor will discuss his fabulous daylilies in the Edmund’s Daylily Patch, located on the meadow adjacent to the Dovecote barn. He will have them for sale. If you can’t make his lecture, which is a “Don’t Miss” opportunity, please come by Dovecote and see the incredible daylily bloom next to the property along the white fence!

In July, it’s “Mr. Hugh Does Flowers...and Returns” due to popular demand on Friday the 12th. Our amusing and excellent “Hentopia” author, Frank Hyman, will be here on July 26 to talk about…Hens!

For more information about all this and about more of our Garden Design Studio set for August 7-11, please visit Dargan.com. As always please call the office (828) 743-0307 to let us know how many will be in your party and the names to reserve your seats.
