The Booksellers at Laurelwood presents Mister Owita’s Guide to Gardening
Mister Owita’s Guide to Gardening: How I Learned the Unexpected Joy of a Green Thumb and an Open Heart is the first-person, nonfiction story about Carol Wall’s unlikely friendship with Giles Owita, a Kenyan-born landscape designer who took on the arduous task of rehabilitating Wall’s neglected yard in Roanoke, Virginia. More importantly, though, he tended to Wall’s wounded spirit. Diagnosed with cancer before she met Owita, Wall had begun to lose faith in her religion, humanity, and herself.
The book follows their blossoming friendship; their unusual relationship creating a bond that bridged their disparate backgrounds and taught them both about the wonderful secrets life has in store. Wall received her third cancer diagnosis in 2012, just a few months before the book was published. Wall was too sick to make appearances, and she passed away in December 2014, just nine months after publication. Since Carol’s death, the Wall family, led by her husband Dick, has redoubled their efforts to promote Carol’s work. “It’s not hard to talk about her,” says Dick. “I like to talk about her. I have to talk about her.”
Free admission; no reservations needed.

Memphis Herb Society: Knowing and Growing Your Herbal Roots
SPEAKER: Tina Marie Wilcox TOPIC: Knowing and Growing Your Herbal Roots There is much more to growing herbs than what meets the eye. Microorganisms living on and around the plant roots, together with the roots create a zone called the rhizosphere. Join Tina Marie for an evening of exploration of life underground and why that matters to herb gardeners! Tina Marie has been the head gardener and herbalist at the Ozark Folk Center State Park’s Heritage Herb Garden in Mountain View, Arkansas since 1984. She coordinates annual herb events and facilitates the production of herb seeds and plants for the park. She writes a weekly herb and garden column entitled “Yarb Tales”, which is published by the Stone County Leader and www.ozarkfolkcenter.com. She co-authored the reference book, the creative herbal home with Susan Belsinger. In 2017 she was honored with the Nancy Putnam Howard Award for Excellence in Horticulture by the Herb Society of America.

Urban Earth Seminar - Hardscape Art with Bernhard Meck
Bernhard Meck thinks outside the box. His art, all at once practical and visionary, is difficult to categorize. Calling it “hardscape,” while largely accurate, does not do it justice. No slight to brick, block, and stone layers, but this is not that. Free form concrete and horticulture might be a little closer to the truth, but still, you won’t understand it until you’ve seen it. Come hear about the work Bernhard has done in landscapes all over the world and right here in Memphis. If you’ve visited the Memphis Zoo, Overton Park, or the Memphis Botanical Garden, you’ve likely seen and admired Bernhard’s work, but if you haven’t, this video should give you some sense of what he does: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAbVLMPhYUI

Memphis Botanic Garden acquires young “Corpse Flower” named Hank!
For Immediate Release: The Memphis Botanic Garden is excited to announce the arrival of "Hank: an Amorphophallus titanium (Titan Arem), or, as more commonly known - "Corpse Flower:. Hank is only two years old and will needto mature to at least seven years of age before blooming for the first time. After that, with luck, he will re-bloom every three years or so.

Interest in the corpse flower comes from its size - it is the largest unbranched inflorescence (flower) in the plant kingdom, powerful stink, and fleeting presence. Referred to as the corpse flower or stinky plant, its putrid smell is most potent during peak bloom at night into the early morning. The odor of the flower attracts carrion flies that help pollinate it.

The corpse flower does not have an annual blooming cycle. The bloom emerges from, and energy is stored in, a huge underground stem called a "corm." The plant blooms only when sufficient energy is accumulated, making time between flowering unpredictable, spanning from a few years to more than a decade. It requires very special conditions, including warm day and night temperatures and high humidity, making botanic gardens like ours well suited to support this strange plant outside of its natural range. While not normally on public display as we nurture his growth, Hank will be available for viewing in our Visitor Center beginning Tuesday, May 1st for only one week.

This plant is native to the tropical rainforests of Sumatra, Indonesia, and first became known to science in 1878 and to the United States in the 1930’s. In its natural habitat, the corpse flower can grow up to 12 feet tall. Hank currently is about 4 feet tall, having doubled in size since the Memphis Botanic Garden acquired it some months ago.
Location: Memphis Botanic Garden 750 Cherry Road, Memphis, TN 38117

Memphis Hort Society - Collecting Rare Plants
Dr. Victor Maddox, a Senior Research Associate at Mississippi State University, has had a lifelong fascination with plants that have inspired him to collect thousands of specimens from all over the globe. His collection is housed on 9 acres near Maben, MS and includes both outdoor plants and several greenhouses.

Dr. Maddox holds a bachelor’s degree in horticulture with a minor in botany from Southeast Missouri State University, a master’s degree from MSU in agronomy and a doctorate from MSU in agronomy specializing in turf and native grasses, with a minor in plant taxonomy. During college, he managed a private university collection of about 7,000 hybrid orchids, some dating to the 1940s. Now he manages his personal collection. The collection is arranged thematically with Old World plants from Africa, Asia, Australia and Europe in front of the house. The backyard has plants from the New World — North and South America.

Dr. Maddox is regarded as the premier plant taxonomist in the Southeastern United States. Join us for this evening with Dr. Maddox to learn about his life’s work and passion for plants.

Memphis Area Daylily Society ANNUAL DAYLILY SALE
Location: Memphis Botanic Garden 750 Cherry Road, Memphis, TN 38117
 

Fri Jun 01, 2018 9 AM

Memphis Botanic Garden acquires young “Corpse Flower” named Hank!
For Immediate Release: The Memphis Botanic Garden is excited to announce the arrival of "Hank: an Amorphophallus titanium (Titan Arem), or, as more commonly known - "Corpse Flower:. Hank is only two years old and will need to mature to at least seven years of age before blooming for the first time. After that, with luck, he will re-bloom every three years or so.

Interest in the corpse flower comes from its size - it is the largest unbranched inflorescence (flower) in the plant kingdom, powerful stink, and fleeting presence. Referred to as the corpse flower or stinky plant, its putrid smell is most potent during peak bloom at night into the early morning. The odor of the flower attracts carrion flies that help pollinate it.

The corpse flower does not have an annual blooming cycle. The bloom emerges from, and energy is stored in, a huge underground stem called a "corm." The plant blooms only when sufficient energy is accumulated, making time between flowering unpredictable, spanning from a few years to more than a decade. It requires very special conditions, including warm day and night temperatures and high humidity, making botanic gardens like ours well suited to support this strange plant outside of its natural range. While not normally on public display as we nurture his growth, Hank will be available for viewing in our Visitor Center beginning Tuesday, May 1st for only one week.

This plant is native to the tropical rainforests of Sumatra, Indonesia, and first became known to science in 1878 and to the United States in the 1930’s. In its natural habitat, the corpse flower can grow up to 12 feet tall. Hank currently is about 4 feet tall, having doubled in size since the Memphis Botanic Garden acquired it some months ago.

Target Bloom Date: est. May 2025!

Movie Screening - Five Seasons - The Gardens of Piet Oudolf
Revolutionary landscape designer Piet Oudolf is known for designing public works like New York City’s popular High Line and the Lurie Garden in Chicago’s Millennium Park that redefine our conception of gardens as works of art in themselves. This gorgeous, meditative documentary immerses viewers in his work, taking us inside Oudolf’s creative process. From his aesthetic theories to his strikingly abstract sketches to the ecological implications of his ideas, the film poetically reveals how Oudolf upends conventional notions of nature, public space, and, ultimately, beauty itself.

Memphis Horticultural Society Meeting - Epimediums: Jewels of the Shade with Karen Perkins
Known by many as a simple ground cover for dry woodland shade, Epimediums are finally getting the appreciation that they deserve. This “perfect shade perennial” possesses a delicate beauty that belies its surprisingly tough, long-lasting nature.

Karen Perkins will illustrate the many and varied types now commercially available, including some of the exciting new evergreen species from China. Characteristics, growth habit, growing and propagation, pests and diseases, and combining Epimediums with other shade perennials in the garden will also be addressed.

Karen graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. in Floriculture and Ornamental Horticulture and from the University of Delaware with a Master of Science in Public Garden Management. She has worked/interned at several botanic gardens including the Cornell Plantations, Longwood Gardens, the Arboretum at Flagstaff, Royal Botanic Gardens – Kew, England and Royal Botanic Gardens – Edinburgh, Scotland. She served in the Education Department of the Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston, MA for 17 years. Karen is currently the owner of Garden Visions Epimediums, a Massachusetts-based mail order nursery offering over 170 species and varieties of epimediums along with other choice companion shade perennials.

Most Garden Vision Epimedium sales are through their catalog, which usually comes out in February-March, and is available on their website www.epimediums.com. They also sell at various plant sales throughout the Northeast.

Please join us to learn more about epimediums – an indispensable plant for your shade garden!

The Art of Bonsai
The world of Arts takes many forms. One such form is called a "Living Art" because the subject is alive and evolves as it grows. This Living Art is called "Bonsai" and the subjects are trees and shrubs which, while young, mimic old trees, some of which have survived over the years under stressful conditions causing them to take on unusual forms, which can be pleasing to the eyes.

Come learn about this Living Art form with MBG volunteer Fred Nowak. Bring a sack lunch or enjoy a box lunch from Fratelli’s in the Garden.

Free with regular admission. Call 901-636-4100 for more information.

Information and sign up meeting. Elmwood invites local gardeners to participate in the inaugural year of Cradle Gardening in the cemetery. If you love Elmwood Cemetery and are passionate about gardening, then this program is for you. Help bring flowers back to the oldest active garden-style cemetery in Memphis!
What are cradles? These oblong-shaped marble 'flower beds' were installed by the hundreds many years ago. They've remained empty for a century, in some cases.
We'll get started at 9 am! At this meeting, Elmwood staff and volunteers will capture your information and assign specifically-selected cradles to you. Gardeners will be welcome to begin as soon as they like.
To participate in this program, Elmwood highly recommends partnering with 1 or 2 of your trusted gardening friends, sharing the responsibility of an assigned area. There is no fee to participate in this volunteer-based program. Volunteers will be required to donate plants and use personal supplies.

Please email kim@elmwoodcemetery.org to save your seat at this meeting.

Elmwood Cemetery can only accept a limited number of volunteer gardeners this year.

Mid South Hosta Society: Tom Pellett, Artist and Garden Designer Surveys His Creations
The Rock Star of Memphis Garden Designers is going home to South Carolina. Tom Pellett’s final lecture as a Memphian will occur Thursday March 21 at 7:00 PM to the Mid-South Hosta Society. His designs have graced Dixon Gallery and Gardens, The Memphis Botanic Garden and many private homes throughout our region. Rather understated and modest, Tom planned gardens with gardeners as he wanted to help them have the garden they dreamed of, not to impose one on them. His plant knowledge seemed boundless as he exercised his craft in garden design using more than three dimensions. After all, gardening taps the fourth dimension of time. Tom is an artist in two dimensions as well, sketching and painting gardens, people, and architecture locally and on his travels.

Come hear this much beloved man as he surveys his time in Memphis since 1983 and says good-bye to a multitude of garden lovers and artistic friends.

Mid-South Hydrangea Society - Longwood Gardens: A World of Garden within One with Karl Gercens
Karl Gercens started his interest at an early age while growing up on a 10,000-acre cotton plantation in Mississippi and developed a lifelong love of horticulture. The warm Mississippi climate and long growing season helped to nurture his fondness for plants and his appreciation for the wonders of natural beauty. Karl’s experimentation with different plant types and growing methods in that region sparked an interest in new & dynamic exploration for cultivation, which ultimately led to his B.S. in Ornamental Horticulture at Mississippi State University. He completed academic internships at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida and at the Filoli Estate in San Francisco Bay area.
Karl will speak on some recent innovations at Longwood Gardens along with new hydrangea cultivar additions to the conservatory display from Holland and England as well as some opposite season garden inspiration from South Africa and New Zealand. Karl traveled throughout the world in 2018 capturing hydrangea and garden images that he will share with us during his presentation. We will follow in his footsteps to beautiful and fantastic public and private gardens from which he draws inspiration for his eye-popping conservatory displays at Longwood.

Join us for an entertaining evening on Monday, April 8, 2019, in the Goldsmith Room at the Memphis Botanic Garden. Our doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the program will begin at 7:00 pm.

Making Hardscape into Art
Bernard Meck’s creative construction is visionary, yet practical. While technically considered “hardscape,” the term does not do his work justice. Free-form concrete and horticulture barely describe his wonderful creations, and seeing his work in person is truly the only way to understand his art. Bernard has created grottos, exotic underwater worlds, and tropical paradises worldwide. In Memphis, his work is featured at the Memphis Zoo, Overton Park, and the Memphis Botanical Garden. Come let him give you inspiration for your yard. For a sense of his artistic creations, take a look at this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAbVLMPhYUI Check this out!

Memphis Herb Society- Virtual Garden Tour & Book Exchange
We have all wondered what beautiful treasures lie beyond some garden gates. Those treasures will always be a work in progress as seasons change or as the gardener tries a new design or new plant material. Regrettably, not all of us have been able to attend the wonderful tours given by the Memphis Master Gardeners or by the Cooper-Young residents. Besides, we may be interested in what our fellow herbies are up to.

There will also be a Book Exchange that evening, for those who are interested. Bring a book on gardening, better yet, a book about herb gardening that you would like to trade. Bring two books or more!! This can be a fun way to refresh our gardening library and our imaginations! Socializing at 6:30 pm, the program begins at 7 pm. Guests $5.

Memphis Horticultural Society Mtg - "I filled up my garden so I started a botanical garden" with Hayes Jackson
Hayes Jackson is Urban Regional Extension Agent at Alabama Cooperative Extension System, Director of Longleaf Botanical Gardens in Anniston, AL, and World-Traveled Plant Explorer. An avid horticulturist and true plant collector, Hayes has ventured to places like China, the Himalayas, Japan, Korea, and Guatemala to look for new plants for Southern landscapes. However, one of Hayes’ best finds literally came from his own backyard — Hydrangea arborescens ‘Hayes’ Starburst’. Hayes has created a 7-acre garden at his home in Anniston, Alabama, where he experiments and trials many plants. His wildly eclectic garden has been featured in many publications including Southern Living. A fine example of botanical addiction, the garden is composed of beds packed with a multitude of plants. He has developed large collections of palms, ginger lilies, bamboo, camellias, azaleas, conifers, hostas, natives, hydrangeas, cacti, succulents, trilliums, cannas, elephant ears, wildflowers, magnolias, amaryllis, daffodils, and hollies.

Join us at 6:30 p.m. for refreshments. Presentation at 7:00 p.m.

Mid-South Hosta Society - Gorgeous Hosta Gardening in Containers with Mike Shadrack
Mike Shadrack is President of the Western New York Hosta Society and has been a member of the American Hosta Society, The British Hosta and Hemerocallis Society, and their executive Bulletin Editor. He serves on the Board of Garden Walk Buffalo Niagra and is chairman of their Events Committee.
Mike has been growing hostas since 1986 and hybridizing almost as long. His other hobby, fishkeeping, led him to see the beauty of Hostas reflected in the garden pond and now he has many more Hostas than fish in his gardens in Western New York where, with his wife Kathy, he maintains a large collection of modern cultivars and a garden devoted to small hostas.
In 1996, Mike retired from London's Metropolitan Police after thirty two years which included serving at Scotland Yard. He is a qualified London Tourist Board Guide and has organized garden tours both in England and specialized tours in the U.S.
His hobby of photography led to a library of about 8,000 images of hosta varieties and hosta gardens, many of which have been published in UK and USA catalogues and magazines. In addition, he supplied the illustrations for the Royal Horticultural Society, Wisley handbook 'Hostas'. He is co-author with Diana Grenfell and photographer of the book, The Color Encyclopedia of Hosta, which was named the '2005 Reference Book of the Year' by The British Garden Writers Guild. His Timber Press Pocket Guide to Hostas was released in September, 2007. A French book, Les Hostas, was published in early 2007 with Mike as photographer and co-author. In February 2010 Timber Press published a new edition of Mike and Diana's The New Encylcopedia of Hostas with updated descriptions and photographs of new cultivars. He produced the photos for his wife, Kathy Guest Shadrack, in her book, The Book of Little Hostas, 2010.Their Smug Creek Garden is open to visitors in July in Hamburg, NY.
Mike is now the Hosta expert at-large for Bowden Hostas in Devon, England. the UK's largest hosta supplier. Through their website at Bowdenhostas.com Mike is available to answer your Hosta questions. Mike is on Facebook and at smugcreekgardens@gmail.com
