Cloverleaf: Garden of Regrets, by Helen Battersby
June 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
In this info- and image-packed presentation you’ll meet the plants you’d wish you’d never planted – and learn how to avoid them (before you do) or to live with them and, perhaps, even love them (if you must).
For 30+ years in her small city garden, Helen Battersby has battled one of a gardener’s toughest challenges – dry shade, on sandy soil under giant Norway maples. This has, unfortunately, caused her to make many a regretful plant choice, and she hopes to save you from that misery.
Helen is a grad of Ryerson’s Landscape Design program and has spent 15 years as a volunteer with the Toronto Master Gardeners.
A member of GardenComm, the Association for Garden Communicators, she has been published in magazines such as Garden Making and, with her sister Sarah, writes the award-winning TorontoGardens.com.
In 2017, the sisters took over publishing of a long-standing book – which in 2019 was renamed the Toronto & Golden Horseshoe Gardener’s Journal and Source Book. In fact, it has loyal users from coast to coast.
