Forget Me Not: Planting a Cemetery Garden

Location: PHS McLean Library

Learn which plants were favored for grave gardens during the Victorian period, and why these plants are still great choices for the modern gardener, even in the home landscape. In addition to discussing the best and most beautiful plants for a graveyard garden, we will also cover how to analyze your site, cultural requirements for different plants, and basic design principles. After the talk, you'll get your grave assignment, and will have some time to explore the resources at the McLean Library to start planning your garden.
