Sat, May 6
When the woodland garden is at its peak, award-winning gardener and native plant enthusiast Douglas Thomas and Deborah Munson, a horticulturist in the region and long-time Trade Secrets organizer, will take guests on a guided tour of Twin Maples, Douglas’s spectacular garden in Salisbury, Connecticut, where the two have collaborated for almost 20 years. Deb will share insights into the design and maintenance of the exquisite woodland, formal gardens, and containers. Twin Maples flows smoothly from architecture to nature, from formal garden to field, with extraordinary views of the Litchfield Hills beyond. Douglas and her late husband, Wilmer Thomas, purchased the property in 1996 and built a Georgian-style house and guest cottage designed by David Anthony Easton. They created formal gardens near the house with landscape architect Rodney Robinson and Deborah Munson (one in tribute to the work of Russell Page), a woodland garden with Deb, and a 40-acre wildflower meadow with native plantsman Larry Weaner.
Light refreshments will be served.
