Digging Deeper: Inspired by Gertrude Jekyll with Susanne Clark

Jethro Athearn Homestead Garden

Sat, Jul 8 
2:00 PM

Susanne Clark, owner of the Jethro Athearn Homestead Garden, will share her twenty-plus years’ experience of creating a garden inspired by Gertrude Jekyll. She will cover the original plans for the herbaceous borders, design considerations in creating the overall setting for the beds, adapting to the climate, and extending the season of interest. This is an all-absorbing passion for Susanne, and she will talk about the unusual process she uses to continually refine the garden. A resource list will be provided, including favorite nurseries to order from, most used reference books, and frequently accessed websites, as well as a list of the plants (nearly 200 cultivars) now in the garden, indicating some of the plants that contribute the most to the garden’s long season of appeal. Part of the time will be spent in the garden and part of the time in her historic 1730 house.
