2020 Upcoming Speaking Events

My gardens will be on tour during the Cape Cod Hydrangea Festival ~ Come on July 17th or 19th, between 10 and 4. (Hint: parking is always easier after 2 PM!)  Click on the link to the festival for a complete schedule of open gardens, the addresses of all open gardens, and the information about events, virtual and otherwise. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic most of my in-person speaking engagements have been postponed or rescheduled as virtual talks. I am booking dates via Zoom now, however. Any of my talks can be presented remotely. Please contact me for details.  

July 22nd  Duxbury Hydrangea Festival – this will be a Zoom presentation!  



October 7th  Village Garden Club of Dennis, MA 

I  recently presented two virtual talks about Hydrangeas for GardenComm that are available in recorded form.

Mopheads and Lacecaps: I answer all the most common questions about Mophead and Lacecaps: Why doesn’t my Hydrangea flower? How can I change the color of my flowers? How do I prune these plants? How do I dry blue Hydrangea flowers? Plus soil, fertilizing and common problems.

Smooth and Panicle Hydrangeas.  Both of these reliably flower in colder climates. I show new varieties of both that smaller or more colorful. You’ll learn about common problems and staking the prone-to-flop Annabelle.  To purchase these talks click here.
