Cottage Gardening at Lasdon
Time: 8:30am - 3:30pm
Location: Lasdon Park, Arboretum and Veterans Memorial in Somers
Whether it's a terrace, rooftop or nook tucked into a corner of your backyard, cottage gardening can transform a space into an exuberant colorful and fragrant place, as participants can discover during a workshop "The Art of Cottage Gardening," presented by the New York Botanical Garden.

Taking its elegance and classic design from England, American cottage gardening is unique in its style, choice of plants and attitude. After viewing slides of local cottage gardens, from the formal to the purely simple, participants will study the design basics and techniques for achieving this charm. The possibilities for planting, to include small trees, shrubs, evergreens, annuals, perennials and wildflowers, will be explored.

Fee for Botanical Garden members is $68 for members, $75 for non-members. It is suggested that participants bring a lunch. Parking is free.

For more information or to register for classes, call the New York Botanical Garden at (800) 322-6924 or log on to www.nybg.org.
