Digging Deeper: Spectacular Midsummer Gardens—A Workshop with Lynden B. Miller

Digging Deeper: Spectacular Midsummer Gardens—A Workshop with Lynden B. Miller

Lynden Miller's Garden

Sat, Jul 27, 2019
10:30 AM

The country garden of Lynden B. Miller, an acclaimed public garden designer and a serious plant lover, has been her laboratory for design ideas and plant combinations since 1980. Deeply influenced by her work as an artist, Lynden will welcome a small group to really look at what makes her garden sing at the height of summer and to better understand her design process. Her site features a large mixed border backed by a curved yew hedge, a raised garden and a cottage garden. There is a small pond and a recirculating stream, a woodland with moss paths and many hardy hydrangeas.

In 1982, Lynden B. Miller rescued and restored the Conservatory Garden in Central Park. Based on her belief that good public open spaces can change city life, she has since designed over forty other gardens and parks, including Bryant Park, New York Botanical Garden, and Wagner Park in Battery Park City. Lynden wrote Parks, Plants and People: Beautifying the Urban Landscape, which won the American Horticultural Society 2010 National Book Award.

Advance registration is required and space is limited.
