Meeting – February 8, 2017

The Garden in Winter
Lucy Borodkin, one of Somerville Garden Club’s founding members and past Presidents, will give a presentation on The Garden in Winter. When we think of our gardens, many of us consider spring, summer and autumn. Winter, dark and cold as it is, is the time we wait for Spring. But, as you look outside your windows in wintertime, how interesting is the view?  How can you begin to think of a four season garden?  Which plants (and not just evergreens) enliven the garden in winter? How can you think about form, texture, color and mass in choosing plants with winter interest?  We generally know how to think about such things in our other garden seasons. Let’s become more fond of our gardens in winter.

Lucy is a Master Gardener and for ten years provided design and instillation to private gardens in her Garden Visions business.

All Somerville Garden Club meetings are free and open to the public. 7-9pm. Meetings are held the at the Tufts Administration Building, (TAB), 167 Holland Street, second floor, wheelchair accessible. Parking is available, and the building is a ten-minute walk from the Davis Square MBTA stop.
