John Lonsdale, ‘Unusual Neophytes and Cyclamen’
John will discuss the many choice and unusual species and selected forms of bulbs, corms, tubers and rhizomes that he grows at “Edgewood Gardens”, the Lonsdale family garden in Exton, SE Pennsylvania. Geophytes are easy to grow and provide beautiful flowers and foliage interest throughout the year in all areas of the garden. Plants which will be discussed and extensively illustrated include Cyclamen, Iris, Crocus, Narcissus, Corydalis, Erythronium, and Trillium, as well as many others, which are suitable for garden conditions ranging from the rock garden to the woodland, as well as growing in containers. The presentation will focus on methods for their successful planting and cultivation, and propagation by division and from seed.*
John will bring cyclamen that he has grown for your purchase before and after the lecture.
