Ever wonder about what the future of Wisconsin gardening is going to look like? Well, wonder no longer! Boerner Botanical Gardens is offering you the chance to find out exactly which kinds of plants you might see popping up in future Wisconsin gardens during their Gardens of the Future walk with Melinda Myers.
The event will be held rain or shine on Wednesday July 25th, 2012 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Boerner Botanical Gardens (9400 Boerner Drive in Southwest Milwaukee) by gardening expert and TV/radio host Melinda Myers. Myers is also the author of several garden-related books including The Garden Book for Wisconsin (2005) and Month-by-Month Gardening in Wisconsin (2007).
During the walk you’ll be invited to visit an All American Trial Garden – one of only 43 in the United States – where you’ll be able to see some of the plants that are currently being tested for possible inclusion in Wisconsin gardens. You’ll also receive a tour of Boerner Botanical Gardens’ other test plots.
As this event is a part of the Melinda Myers series of garden walks, admission prices are set a little higher than their other events, at $20 for members and $25 for anyone else who wishes to participate. Proceeds from the event help to support the Friends of Boerner Botanical Gardens’ children’s plant science and environmental education program.
** Please note that attendance to the Gardens of the Future walk with Melinda Myers is limited, so you are advised to register early by calling 414-525-5659 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
