Marietta and Ernie O’Byrne’s garden—situated on one-and-one-half acres in Eugene, Oregon—is filled with an incredible array of plants from around the world. By consciously leveraging the garden’s many microclimates, they have created a stunning patchwork of exuberant plants that is widely considered one of America’s most outstanding private gardens. In this very special Digging Deeper, they will share their deep knowledge of plants and essential garden advice. Marietta and Ernie will discuss design ideas for shade and drought-loving chaparral gardens, plant choices that have proven reliable for the local climate, many of them choice and underused, and maintenance practices including pruning, staking, and soil maintenance. Equal parts inspirational and practical, their goal is to help gardeners weave their own incredible gardens.
