Learn all about miniature gardens with botanist and author, Mary Palmer Dargan, at Dovecote’s Porch & Gardens in Cashiers, NC, at 10 a.m., Saturday July 12.
This summer, Dovecote has been hosting multiple events when Mary Palmer Dargan and guest speakers celebrate mountain landscape design, sculpture and art in the garden, home gardening and popular garden culture. Stop by to sit on the front porch, tour the gardens and check out the gardening accessories and books.
On Saturday, July 12, learn what materials to use in a fool-proof mini-garden. Solve the mystery of the container, paving and plant materials, types of houses, pets, site accessories and maintenance techniques. Bring the children!
