foggy_bottom_fall_garden_richard_bloomBressingham Gardens, located in Norfolk, England, is one of the spectacular gardens to be featured. This amazing display covers 17 acres and encompasses six distinct gardens, encompassing more than 8,000 species. Award-winning garden designer and author, Adrian Bloom and his father, Alan Bloom, created this masterpiece. There are two main sections – The Dell Garden and Foggy Bottom. I had the incredible experience of staying at Bressingham Hall, (located in the center of the gardens) several years ago while visiting Adrian and his wife, Rosemary.

crocosmia_lucifer_waltersThe Inspired Garden Design lecture includes Adrian’s top 12 perennial picks for year-round interest in the garden. One of these is Crocosmia ‘Lucifer’, with shimmering red flowers that reach 36”-42” in summer. It does best in full sun and is hardy in Zones 5 – 9. Hummingbirds adore the flowers! Attractive sword-like leaves are an added bonus. I have grown ‘Lucifer’ for two years in my southern Maine gardens with no winter protection.

Below is one of many testimonials from an attendee at the last webinar (she watched the lecture after the live broadcast):

“I finally watched the webinar and was riveted! So much information packed into that hour plus. I know I will be watching it several more times. Looking forward to your next one!” Mary

I look forward to welcoming you to the lecture later this month.
