Heronswood Garden was established in 1987 and was the home of plant Explorer Dan Hinckley and his partner Robert Jones. The famous Heronswood Nursery was operated on the property. Heronswood was sold in 2000 to the Burpee company who soon after filed for bankruptcy and closed the garden. In 2012 the garden was purchased by the Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe who have resurrected the garden. We will go on a tour of the garden which will provide many shade gardens design ideas along with uncommon plant selections. The gardens feature a very large table trough, a fernery and a formal bog garden. We will see plenty of ideas to incorporate in your garden design.
Lisa was introduced to gardening by her grandmother, a Czech immigrant, whose garden was on a very steep hillside in southeastern Ohio. Every inch of the garden was filled with plants just like the garden catalogs, everything grew! Lisa gardens just outside of Hell, Michigan where she grows hostas, rhododendrons, sun and shade plants. When she isn’t gardening Lisa works as a toxicologist for the State of Michigan.
