Symposium on the Brink of Sell Out

If you’ve been twiddling your fingers or just plumb forgotten to send your registration, you should act fast before tickets for the 2014 Greater Greenville Gardening Symposium are sold out. Last I heard, there were only a handful of tickets remaining and the price increase at the close of the current year could mean those will be snapped up in a jiffy.

This year’s offering, Crafting the Artful Garden, is planned for Saturday, February 1, 2013, at the TD Convention Center. Featured speakers include Gordon Hayward, celebrated writer and designer on new ways to examine and create gardens; Carol Reese, ornamental horticulture specialist on unusual plants that add “wow” to the landscape, and Chris Crowder, head gardener at Levens Hall in the English Lake District, who will examine the 300-year old garden at Levens and its refreshment and renewal through time.

Concurrent speakers are Brie Arthur on starting vegetables from seed (morning presentation) and woody plants for the winter garden (afternoon program), Lisa Wagner on growing edibles in the urban garden, Jean Lindsey and Terry Gentry on miniature gardens and terrariums, Heather Collins on garden photography, and Marian St.Clair (myself!) on tried & true garden styles.

Registration, which includes morning refreshments and lunch, as well as a vendor’s marketplace, is a bargain at $65 ($70 after December 31). To register, print a symposium brochure from the GGMG Web site.
