Native Plants for New England Gardens


Mark Richardson


Sunday, March 1, 2020 at 1pm.

Join an informative, in-depth talk by Mark Richardson to learn about the importance of native plants in supporting ecosystems and how to choose the right ones for your particular piece of paradise.

 Mark Richardson is Director of Horticulture for Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston. Prior to joining the staff at Tower Hill he served as Botanic Garden Director for the Native Plant Trust (formerly The New England Wildflower Society) where he oversaw Garden in the Woods and Nasami Farm native plant nursery.  Richardson is co-author of Native Plants for New England Gardens, a guide to over 100 native perennials, trees, shrubs, ferns, grasses and vines.  An article that included a part of Mark’s work at Tower Hill recently appeared in the New York Times.

A book signing will follow the discussion.
