Gardens and Tonic: Gravel Culture at the Scott Arboretum

June 11 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Gravel garden in full sun

Grab your favorite beverage and join us virtually with Scott Arboretum Gardener Susan Romero. Susan will be sharing with us what gardening in gravel means and how it works; where gravel culture can be found at the Scott Arboretum and how it was installed; where the idea for gravel culture came from; its successes and failures; and last but not least she will highlight several of the plants used in this form of gardening. Thank you for sending any gravel gardening questions or pictures to Julie Jenney by June 9.


Gardens and Tonic is a weekly question and answer virtual session with horticulture professionals. Join Julie Jenney from the Scott Arboretum and a featured horticulture professional each week on Thursdays at 4 pm for gardening questions, adventures, and discussion! Participants may be asked to submit photos related to their garden question before the session. Registration is free but required as sessions are limited to 25. Grab your favorite beverage and join us for what we know will be lively discussions!

Registration is required and limited to 25 people to allow for conversation. Registrants will receive an email with a zoom link to participate. Participants must have Zoom downloaded on their computer and be comfortable using it.
