Saturday, June 18 Garden Lecture by Adam Wheeler, Broken Arrow Nursery Doors open at 8:30am. Lecture at 9:00am. $15 in advance. $20 at the door.

Start your day with a Continental breakfast of home-baked goodies and more while enjoying an illustrated lecture, sponsored by Ward’s Nursery in Great Barrington, that explores a garden free from the impact of deer. Adam will discuss the ornamental qualities and essential cultural requirements for a diverse assortment of plants that show strong resistance to deer browse including a healthy diversity of Eastern U.S. native plants as well as some well-behaved exotics. Learn more about the Hidden Gardens event.


In addition, strategies for managing the impact of deer in the garden as well as tricks to succeed with “deer candy” in “deer country” will be highlighted. The lecture is aptly titled “I like it, I love it and the deer don’t eat it!”
