Learn about cottage gardening at the Bixby

Dreaming of a garden bursting with color and life? We are too! Next week we can all get some expert advice from Charlie Nardozzi of “Vermont Garden Journal” and “In the Garden” fame. The gardener’s gardener will give a talk on Thursday, April 26, at the Bixby Library in Vergennes to help us plan our “cottage gardens.” Hopefully by late next week it will be warm enough for us to take Charlie’s lessons into our own gardens, but if not, his words of advice will help us dream and plan until the weather warms.
Cottage gardening is a technique from England where annuals, perennials, bulbs, small trees, shrubs and edibles all are planted together in a riot of color and textures to give the home garden interest and function from spring until fall. In this talk, Charlie will cover the history of cottage gardening, modern versions of these gardens, plant selection, and other elements you can use to make your cottage garden shine.
The Bixby is at 258 Main St. in the Little City. Charlie’s talk will be held 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Charlie Nardozzi is an award-winning, nationally recognized garden writer, speaker, and radio and television personality. He has worked for more than 25 years bringing expert gardening information to home gardeners through outreach through every type of media. He simply delights in making gardening information simple, easy, fun and accessible to everyone. Learn more about him online at gardeningwithcharlie.com
