Monterey-CNPS Slideshow: Natural Design In Gardens Of Japan Slideshow

  • Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History 165 Forest Avenue Pacific Grove, CA, 93950 United States (map)

Did you know that the majority of Japanese gardens are native? That most are not sheared, but highly natural looking? Would you like your garden to have four-season beauty, rather than only Spring flowers? Join me for an delightful visual journey as I show photos from secret gardens of Kyoto. I will read from my best-selling garden memoir, Cutting Back—My Apprenticeship in the Gardens of Kyoto, for a glimpse of Kyoto craftsmen who are often as obsessed about natives as we are! I’ll also to teach you natural landscaping tricks so your gardens can evoke scenes from wild California nature. 

This event is free and open to the public through the Monterey Chapter of California Native Plant Society!
