Karl Gercens III to present Garden Design Inspiration from around the Globe


Please join the Talbot County Garden Club on January 23rd at 1:30 PM as conservatory horticulturist, Karl Gercens III, whisks us through a few of the 2,500 gardens he has visited in 28 countries since his full-time employment at Longwood Gardens 20 years ago.   Highlights include ideas on using native plants versus exotic ornamentals as well as what to do in the tiny spaces we call gardens these days!  You’ll get tips on pathway design and garden art as well as a few lessons on ‘thinking outside the box’.  This is a presentation you’ll not want to miss!!

Karl Gercens joins us from Longwood Gardens, where he oversees many of the changing displays in the Longwood conservatories. His notoriety for using a pallet of colored foliage trees, shrubs, and perennials continues to funnel the exciting content of his professional lectures given nationwide and his horticultural classes offered at Longwood Gardens. When Karl is not gardening, lecturing, or consulting his horticultural passion extends worldwide with frequent visits to public and private gardens in all 50 states and more than 20 countries! While at those locations, he often takes vibrant and vivid digital photography which he catalogues to share his experiences with others.

This event will be held at the Talbot County Free Library and is free and open to the public.
