Our next meeting is just two days away. Gary Lewis from Phoenix Perennials in Richmond will talk about Hot New Plants.
Gary bought Phoenix Perennials Nursery when he was only 28, in 2004. He has greatly expanded the nursery to include one of the largest and most exciting selections of perennials in Canada with over 4000 different plants each year. He strives to include cutting edge new perennials and tried and true garden stalwarts. He holds a Masters of Science degree in Plant Ecology from UBC. To add to his credentials, he has gone plant hunting in Chile and Taiwan and is also a member of the Great Plant Picks committee, based in Washington state.
Gary will give you the inside track on recent new cutting edge garden plants and talk about where plant breeding is heading in the future. If you love new plants, you won't want to miss this talk!
He is packing his truck with plants so bring some cash just in case you can't resist trying something new.
