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.
