Topics Carol Reese will cover at the 33rd Annual Lawn & Garden Show. Visit seminar schedule for exact day and times.

Extraordinary Plants and Fascinating Gardeners – Plant lovers often remember the first time they “met” an extraordinary plant, and the characters forever associated with them. Carol’s talk highlights some of her “must-haves” and the stories behind them that range from poignant to hilarious. The time-honored tradition of passing along plants is more than an exchange of a beautiful item. It creates new friendships, celebrates lasting bonds and even speaks of our broader human history.

How Does Your Garden GLOW? Why should you hold a compass in your hand when you plant? Magical moments are often about the light, yet too few consider how best to set up those moments when choosing and siting landscape plants. Plants can be living stained glass, fireworks, even “torches” with these concepts. Also break a few “rules” of plant placement to create intriguing compositions of light and shadow, which can actually allow your eyes to physically read more vivid color and fuller detail. These ideas can create a day of garden moments that spangle, sparkle, shimmer and glow as the sun moves through the sky.

Sex in the Garden: Your outdoor walks will never be the same. Carol’s talk indelibly reminds you that flowers are sex organs, and illuminates some of the stranger versions, such as flowers that choose to be male or female depending on the circumstances! It also informs when gender discrimination is advised when choosing landscape plants! Beyond the blooms, Carol moves on to moving or sometimes bizarre details of the sex lives of frogs, dragonflies, and other garden critters. This fun fastmoving talk is entertaining, but also a celebration of the intimate interactions just outside the window. Relax, the only frontal nudity is of flower parts and possibly garden statuary!

Just Do It! Create a Lifestyle Landscape - Intimidated by lofty landscape principles? Let Carol trash the idea that there is a “right” way, and help you develop a fun, productive philosophy that guides your choices and forgives “mistakes”. Her inspirational slides show creative and solution landscapes, both for those with deep pockets and those with tight budgets. Would life be better with spaces for entertainment or edibles? Privacy screens with multi-seasonal beauty, that are also provide a haven for wildlife? A safe place for pets and kids to run and play? This funny, wise and motivational talk will have you looking at your landscape with fresh eyes as a place that evolves instead of a plan that stays frozen.
