The Layered Garden by David Culp

David Culp, author and creator of the magnificent gardens at Brandywine Cottage in Downingtown, Pennsylvania speaks from his brilliant and visually stunning book “The Layered Garden.”

David has lectured about gardens nationwide for more than 15 years. His articles have appeared in Martha Stewart Living, Country Living, Fine Gardening, Green Scene, and many other publications. He is a former contributing editor to Horticulture magazine and has served as chairman of the Mid-Atlantic Hardy Plant Society. Currently, David is Vice President for Sunny Border Nurseries in Connecticut and the herbaceous perennials instructor at Longwood Gardens. Brandywine Cottage is listed in the Smithsonian Institution Archives of American Gardens. In a recent article in the New York Times, Anne Raver called him a “wizard.” The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society has conferred the Distinguished Garden Award and the Award of Merit upon Brandywine Cottage.

David’s lecture teaches gardeners how to choose the correct plants by understanding how they grow and change throughout the seasons, and how to design and maintain a layered garden. To illustrate how layering works, David will take us on a virtual tour through each part of his celebrated garden. The lecture culminates with a discussion of his signature plants for all four seasons followed by a book signing.

This program is eligible for 2.0 Rutgers Master Gardener CEU’s.
