Celebrating the Victorian Garden

Thursday, May 5, 2016 -
7:00pm to 8:00pm
What do carpet beds, moon gardens, cottage gardens, specimen trees, snowball bushes, and fragrant peonies have in common? They are all part of the tapestry that made up the Victorian-era garden in America. Nina Koziol presents the garden design ideas that were popular when the Downers Grove Public Library was founded. You'll find several ideas that are still useful in today's home gardens.
