The Arboretum Display Garden Up-Close: Gertrude Jekyll from Hot to Cool (150-07-12-14)
Saturday, July 12, 10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Mary H. Meyer, professor and extension horticulturalist, University of Minnesota, http://grasstalk.wordpress.com
Gertrude Jekyll is arguably the genius of the English cottage garden. And this class offers a rare opportunity for a close-up look at how the Arboretum took her guiding principles and applied them in our own annual borders and beds. With one of our leading horticulturist and Gertrude Jekyll expert as your instructor, you’ll find out how to get the most impact with color and learn how to follow Gertrude’s color schemes—she crossed boundaries in the way with which she included bright, hot to cool colors, and her favorite grays and pastels. This class includes a stroll through the annual borders, specially designed by Duane Otto to reflect Gertrude’s principles. You’ll feel as if you’ve traveled across the pond to luxuriate in an authentic English cottage garden. A perfect follow-up to the April 5th class “The Genius of the Cottage Garden: Gertrude Jekyll.” We recommend following this class with Cottage Garden in a Vase: Gertrude Jekyll Arranged, Saturday, July 12, 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Includes Arboretum admission.
