Saturday is the annual Ladew Garden Festival, one of the highlights of the spring in our area. If you’re anywhere near Baltimore, this is the place to be! And looking at the weather forecast for the weekend, it’s going to be ideal – sunny and 70.
This year’s guest lecturer is Dr. Allan Armitage, a horticulture professor at the University of Georgia, who, in addition to his gardening knowledge is known for his Tilley hat. At the University of Georgia, he runs the research gardens where new plant material from most of the flower breeders in the world is evaluated. His courses include Greenhouse Production, Greenhouse Crop Management and Herbaceous Plant Identification and Use. He has visited research and production centers throughout the world and studies annuals, perennials, cut flowers and greenhouse crops in various climates.
Halcyon House Antiques, who will be showing some of their new Angela Caputi jewelry!
