Lori Chips
TROUGHS: Gardening in the Smallest Landscape

It is easy to become enchanted by troughs, and this talk will make it even easier. In this lecture both beginners and seasoned rock gardeners will find abundant inspiration plus many inside tips about the art and science of trough gardening. Learn about the many different planting styles, from the Classic Miniature Landscape to the Baguette, to the beloved Succulent Bowl. Find out how to use an anchor plant, a bun or cushion, a tiny groundcover or a cascading “drooler” to best effect.

Lori Chips has been committed to the exploration of alpine plants since her student days at The New York Botanical Garden. After graduating, she accepted the job as propagator for the Rock and Native Plant Gardens there. She has been Alpine Manager at Oliver Nurseries for over 20 years, expanding the rock garden collection and pressing the boundaries in the art and science of creating and planting troughs, a long-standing interest that holds a special place in her heart. Her book on the subject: Hypertufa Containers: Creating and Planting an Alpine Trough Garden was released by Timber Press in 2018.

Book signing will follow the lecture along with a special sale of troughs and plants.

Summer HAH Garden Tours | Please join us
Friday, July 8

HAH Members and Their Guests Have the Special Opportunity to Tour Several Private Gardens In Southampton

The first garden on this tour will be that of
Greg Wiseman

Originally begun 20 years ago with Jeffrey Glick, this garden is full of established as well as new wonders. The first feature as one enters this property is the full-sun, deer-resistant garden to the right. A turn left along a path takes you to the first water feature: a koi pond and waterfall replete with wildlife. Continuing along the winding path through a gate and fence, Greg is creating a new woodland garden mix of native and non-native trees, shrubs, and perennials, following the removal of the lawn as well as 80 dead Eastern Red Cedars. Included are 40 different varieties of Japanese maples, each labelled so visitors may take note. Recently, an extensive second water feature has been added with a waterfall, pond, surrounding patio, and seating areas.

A third water feature is the swimming pool with separate water fountains and a patio that is home to a large collection of container plantings, many of which are stored during the winter in the home’s basement greenhouse. Visitors are in for a real treat exploring Greg’s wonderful garden.

Check in at first garden before 11:00 am. Directions to the several additional gardens on the tour will be given at the sign-in table. Guests of Individual and Family/Dual Memberships will be charged $10 per person. Guests must be accompanied by members.
