Sidney/North Saanich Library 10091 Resthaven drive
Join Louise Boutin for an illustrated talk on the low maintenance, unpretentious garden style celebrated in Anna Wintour’s Long Island property. The new wild loosens up the overly maintained gardens of Vancouver Island homes and introduces design moves to create cultivated, relaxed and luxurious plantings . Louise will cover meadows, rambling roses, drought tolerant plants, ferneries, stumperies, the works! This talk will be of interest to everyone, from the beginner gardener to the Ph.D. designer.
