Don’t miss the chance to visit a small private garden created by garden writer Adam Levine and landscape designer Tom Borkowski in Media, Pa., with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society on Wednesday, June 18 at 10 a.m.
The interlocking geometry of paths, beds, and patio combined with carefully placed fences and screen plants create elements of surprise as you wander through this garden. Filled with a variety of bulbs, unusual and classic perennials, shrubs, annuals and tender perennials, this garden will delight and inspire you. Levine and Borkowski also grow leafy vegetables, including lettuces, beets and cabbages, as well as beans, both to eat and for the color they add to the beds.
The garden includes a variety of bulbs, both in pots and in the ground; a nice collection of hellebores, and other unusual and classic perennials. Several spaces are devoted to a display of annuals and tender plants that change each year. The garden includes a bluestone patio, dry-laid stone walls, and bluestone-edged gravel paths designed by Borkowski.
Participation in this garden visit is limited to the first 20 who register. Travel directions will be sent following registration. The cost is $20 for PHS members and $25 for non-members. For more information or to register, please visit https://www.pennhort.net/inthegarden
