Lectures & Events Schedule – 2014

2014 Lectures:

Despite our busy relocation schedule we’re enjoying an active lecture program for 2014 that started off with an especially wonderful 2-day event in April in Clarendon, New South Wales, Australia – about a 75 minute drive WNW of Sydney!

We’ve traveled ‘down under’ on several occasions and visited many excellent gardens and talked ‘plants’ with their keen gardeners. Hydrangeas grow well along the country’s southern and easterly coastlines and I was very pleased to have this opportunity to share our learnings with the avid gardeners of Australia.
