Movie Screening - Five Seasons - The Gardens of Piet Oudolf
Revolutionary landscape designer Piet Oudolf is known for designing public works like New York City’s popular High Line and the Lurie Garden in Chicago’s Millennium Park that redefine our conception of gardens as works of art in themselves. This gorgeous, meditative documentary immerses viewers in his work, taking us inside Oudolf’s creative process. From his aesthetic theories to his strikingly abstract sketches to the ecological implications of his ideas, the film poetically reveals how Oudolf upends conventional notions of nature, public space, and, ultimately, beauty itself. FREE to the public. Hosted by Memphis Horticultural Society.

Memphis Horticultural Society Meeting - Epimediums: Jewels of the Shade with Karen Perkins
Known by many as a simple ground cover for dry woodland shade, Epimediums are finally getting the appreciation that they deserve. This “perfect shade perennial” possesses a delicate beauty that belies its surprisingly tough, long-lasting nature.

Karen Perkins will illustrate the many and varied types now commercially available, including some of the exciting new evergreen species from China. Characteristics, growth habit, growing and propagation, pests and diseases, and combining Epimediums with other shade perennials in the garden will also be addressed.

Karen graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. in Floriculture and Ornamental Horticulture and from the University of Delaware with a Master of Science in Public Garden Management. She has worked/interned at several botanic gardens including the Cornell Plantations, Longwood Gardens, the Arboretum at Flagstaff, Royal Botanic Gardens – Kew, England and Royal Botanic Gardens – Edinburgh, Scotland. She served in the Education Department of the Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston, MA for 17 years. Karen is currently the owner of Garden Visions Epimediums, a Massachusetts-based mail order nursery offering over 170 species and varieties of epimediums along with other choice companion shade perennials.

Most Garden Vision Epimedium sales are through their catalog, which usually comes out in February-March, and is available on their website www.epimediums.com. They also sell at various plant sales throughout the Northeast.

Please join us to learn more about epimediums – an indispensable plant for your shade garden!

The Art of Bonsai
The world of Arts takes many forms. One such form is called a "Living Art" because the subject is alive and evolves as it grows. This Living Art is called "Bonsai" and the subjects are trees and shrubs which, while young, mimic old trees, some of which have survived over the years under stressful conditions causing them to take on unusual forms, which can be pleasing to the eyes.

Come learn about this Living Art form with MBG volunteer Fred Nowak. Bring a sack lunch or enjoy a box lunch from Fratelli’s in the Garden.

Free with regular admission. Call 901-636-4100 for more information.

Information and sign up meeting. Elmwood invites local gardeners to participate in the inaugural year of Cradle Gardening in the cemetery. If you love Elmwood Cemetery and are passionate about gardening, then this program is for you. Help bring flowers back to the oldest active garden-style cemetery in Memphis!
What are cradles? These oblong-shaped marble 'flower beds' were installed by the hundreds many years ago. They've remained empty for a century, in some cases.
We'll get started at 9 am! At this meeting, Elmwood staff and volunteers will capture your information and assign specifically-selected cradles to you. Gardeners will be welcome to begin as soon as they like.
To participate in this program, Elmwood highly recommends partnering with 1 or 2 of your trusted gardening friends, sharing the responsibility of an assigned area. There is no fee to participate in this volunteer-based program. Volunteers will be required to donate plants and use personal supplies.

Please email kim@elmwoodcemetery.org to save your seat at this meeting.

Elmwood Cemetery can only accept a limited number of volunteer gardeners this year.
