Memphis Horticultural Society Mtg - "I filled up my garden so I started a botanical garden" with Hayes Jackson
Hayes Jackson is Urban Regional Extension Agent at Alabama Cooperative Extension System, Director of Longleaf Botanical Gardens in Anniston, AL, and World-Traveled Plant Explorer. An avid horticulturist and true plant collector, Hayes has ventured to places like China, the Himalayas, Japan, Korea, and Guatemala to look for new plants for Southern landscapes. However, one of Hayes’ best finds literally came from his own backyard — Hydrangea arborescens ‘Hayes’ Starburst’. Hayes has created a 7-acre garden at his home in Anniston, Alabama, where he experiments and trials many plants. His wildly eclectic garden has been featured in many publications including Southern Living. A fine example of botanical addiction, the garden is composed of beds packed with a multitude of plants. He has developed large collections of palms, ginger lilies, bamboo, camellias, azaleas, conifers, hostas, natives, hydrangeas, cacti, succulents, trilliums, cannas, elephant ears, wildflowers, magnolias, amaryllis, daffodils, and hollies.

Join us at 6:30 p.m. for refreshments. Presentation at 7:00 p.m.

He produced the photos for his wife, Kathy Guest Shadrack, in her book, The Book of Little Hostas, 2010.Their Smug Creek Garden is open to visitors in July in Hamburg, NY.

Memphis Horticultural Society Mtg - Memphis Horticultural Society – Knock Out Natives with George Coombs, Director of Horticulture at Mt. Cuba Center in Delaware
Mt. Cuba Center, a premier native plant garden, is dedicated to supporting the environment through the practice and promotion of ecological horticulture. Their trial program has been evaluating native plants and their related cultivars for more than a decade. Join George Coombs as he discusses the new approach Mt. Cuba is taking to evaluate plants for both garden performance and ecological value. In his presentation, “Knock Out Natives”, you will learn about several top-performing selections of Coreopsis, Baptisia, Monarda, and Phlox, including a few species and cultivars that you’ve probably never heard of.

George Coombs is the Director of Horticulture at Mt. Cuba Center and formerly managed the horticultural research programs, including the trial garden where he evaluated native plants and their related cultivars for their horticultural and ecological value. He has authored evaluation reports on Heuchera, Coreopsis, Baptisia, Monarda, and Phlox. In addition to the trials, George also evaluated plants for introduction to the nursery trade. This work has helped bring to market five new native plant cultivars. George is a graduate of the University of Delaware and prior to joining Mt. Cuba Center, he worked in the nursery industry at both the wholesale and retail level.

Join us for an interesting and informative evening on Tuesday, December 3, 2019, in the Goldsmith Room at the Memphis Botanic Garden. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the program will begin at 7:00 p.m. Visitors – $5

Hort Society Meeting-The Praisie Inspired Garden Ethic with Benjamin Vogt
Benjamin Vogt lives in Lincoln, Nebraska where he owns Monarch Gardens, a prairie garden design firm. He speaks nationally on native plants, pollinators, sustainable (and ethical) garden design, and has a weekly column at Houzz.com that includes over 150 articles. Benjamin’s writing and photography have appeared in dozens of publications from Garden Design to Orion Magazine. You can learn more about Benjamin and his design work at: www.monarchgard.com

Benjamin is author of several books including A New Garden Ethic: Cultivating Defiant Compassion for an Uncertain Future. His presentation, “The Prairie-Inspired Garden Ethic”, is based on this book and explores how to embrace gardens as places to create change benefiting all species. Through inspiring new research and beautiful images of wildlife and sustainable landscapes, you’ll be taken on a journey into gardening on a deeper level. In Benjamin’s view, gardening with native plants is an ethical and even moral imperative in a time of changing climate and extinction.

September 12. Herbal Work Study: Balms. 8:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. (8:00 a.m. sign-in). The first two hours will be spent weeding, grooming, thinning, planting, or whatever else needs doing in the Herb Garden. The last hour will be spent learning ways to make herbal balms, lotions, and salves. I will have cold water and bug spray (if needed) available, you bring your favorite hand tools for weeding and grooming (soil knives, Cape Cod weeders, old kitchen knives, trowels, pruners, gloves, etc. – no hoes or rakes needed, though). . Everyone will get to go home with a handout that includes tips and general information. Please arrive at the Horticulture Building in the south end of the parking lot between 8:00 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. The group will leave the building promptly at 8:30 a.m. Please dress appropriately: sun hats and closed toe shoes are suggested. Please note: this learning opportunity is “purchased” via a barter system: you must work the first two hours (8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.) to attend the last hour of class (10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.), making this a free event!) . If you have any questions not covered here, call Sherri McCalla @ 901-636-4134.
