Charlotte Albers to talk about gardening with BLUE

MIDDLEBURY — While it is difficult to imagine spring on these cold February days, the Middlebury Garden Club has been busy organizing an event that will help gardeners get excited about the coming warmer weather. In “Mad About Blue” Charlotte Albers of Paintbox Garden will discuss how to bring blue into gardens and create beautiful combinations. She will give her presentation on Tuesday, March 12, at 1 p.m. at The Residence at Otter Creek.
From spring to late summer stunners, attendees will look at a range of plants, including many annuals that are great for containers, perennials like delphinium and phlox, and early spring ephemerals which can be used to usher in the new season and add a welcome look to entry walks or paths through a woodland.
Albers is a contributor to “Houzz” and writes for numerous garden publications. She uses her gardens in Shelburne as a lab for study and experimentation and is always planning new color pairings in her trials. She studied botany and plant taxonomy at the U.S. National Arboretum, holds certificates in Horticulture and Landscape Design from the USDA Graduate School in Washington, D.C., and completed the Master Gardener program through Virginia Cooperative Extension. She currently serves as curator of the Pollinator Garden at the University of Vermont’s Horticulture, Education and Research Center in South Burlington.
The Residence at Otter Creek is located at 350 Lodge Road in Middlebury.
