Bring the Bard to Your Yard
Thursday, April 07, 2022, 07:00pm - 08:00pm

Bring the Bard to Your Yard 2

Explore Tudor and Shakespearean gardens in the UK and USA in this virtual program with garden historian and writer, Lesley Parness, who has worked in public gardens in America and abroad for the past four decades.

The age of Elizabeth I provided William Shakespeare with a rich and varied plant palette, both from England's considerable bounty and foreign introductions. These he "planted" in his prolific contributions to English literature, and they still bloom today in language filled with plant lore and flower symbolism. Learn Elizabeth I's role in the advancement of English horticulture and peruse Elizabethan garden elements -- including mazes, knots, fantastical topiary and the pleached bower -- to add to your garden.
