This coming September 12 and 13, 2015 Hollister House Garden and the Garden Conservancy will present our fifth Garden Study Weekend. On Saturday, a symposium entitled "The Living Garden: Nature and Design" will provide an opportunity to hear some of the most interesting voices in landscape architecture, ecological design, and horticulture at work today. On Sunday, there will be a Garden Conservancy Litchfield County Open Day, a self-guided garden tour of outstanding gardens in picturesque Litchfield County, and a Rare and Unusual Plant Sale at Hollister House featuring selections for the late-season garden from some of the Northeast's leading specialty nurseries. The Hollister House Garden Study Weekend launched in 2008. Now held every September, the multi-faceted weekend has quickly developed into one of the leading gardening events in New England, drawing avid garden lovers from across the area, the mid-Atlantic, and as far away as Canada.Registration for the symposium and cocktail party, including early buying at the sale of Rare and Unusual Plants, is $180 per person for registrations purchased by August 1 and for members of Hollister House Garden and the Garden Conservancy. After August 1, registration for non-members is $195.
