The Emily N. Daniels Horticulture Symposium: Smaller Garden – Bigger Impact

The Toby

Olbrich Botanical Gardens, Madison, Wis.

In today’s gardening world, less can definitely be more. The IMA’s day-long horticulture symposium will bring together regional and national experts to discuss the challenges and joys of gardening in smaller spaces. Suitable for the novice gardener as well as the professional designer, topics will include: plant selection ranging from moderately-sized woodies to abundantly prolific fruits and vegetables, intriguing perennials to liven up any garden or patio, and special design considerations for these new spaces. A wide selection of relevant gardening books will be available for purchase, as well as ample opportunity for one-on-one conversation with the speakers and IMA Horticulture staff. Luncheon and refreshments will be provided.
