Topic: Gardening Like Gertrude Jekyll
We love British gardens, especially the cottage gardens designed by Gertrude Jekyll (1843-1932). Learn how you can create a British garden at your home, using the gardening design and ideas of Gertrude Jekyll. She designed hundreds of gardens over her lifetime, including a few here in the U.S. Speaker Mary Hockenberry Meyer has been a professor at the University of Minnesota since 1994, managed the Master Gardener program for 13 years and has taught classes on Garden History in England and Successful School Gardens, both in London and the Twin Cities. She manages the grass collection at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.
