The Art of the Shade Garden

Speakers: Sarah & Gary Milek

Tuesday, February 4th

1:00 PM

Location: Montshire Museum of Science

Norwich, Vermont  

Sarah and Gary Milek will be sharing information they have learned by gardening in the shade. Sarah will show her favorite and very popular plants for shade gardening. Gary's wonderful paintings will thrill you.

 

In 1974, Sarah and Gary Milek created a lifestyle around plants and fine art, inspired by the natural beauty of the woodland plants and wildflowers that surrounded them. Sarah is an accomplished herbalist and horticulturist, and draws on her background in art and dance to design lyrical floral displays through their grounds. A world-renowned painter, Gary studied art at Syracuse University, Boston Museum Art School, and Rijks Museum in Amsterdam where he perfected the technique of egg tempera and gold leaf.

Disregard traditional design rules and adopt a new approach. What clues can you take from your landscape to help provide the right plant in the right place? Learn to evaluate sunlight, moisture, soil and other factors to encourage a successful garden that does not require many inputs in the way of watering, fertilizing and extra coddling on your part.
