Friends of the Arboretum Lecture
"What's New? Great Plants for the Home Garden"
Bryce H. Lane, Lecturer and Undergraduate Coordinator, Department of Horticultural Science, NC State University, and Host of In The Garden with Bryce Lane
October 15, 2011 (Saturday) – 9:30 AM–11:00 AM
Home gardeners and plant enthusiasts are always looking for that great "new" plant. So much is being done by plant explorers, breeders, and collectors to introduce new plants into the market. The adage "what is old becomes new, what is new becomes old" also pertains to gardening. Bryce will talk about many of the newly introduced plants, but, he'll also talk about some good 'ole plants that are re-entering the gardening focus. And remember, good gardening is not just about the plants, but also about arranging and preparing an appropriate place for them!
