Experience the rolling horse country outside of Baltimore where Dave discovers the unique vision of Harvey Ladew. Starting in 1929, Ladew planted and sculpted Yew, Boxwood, and Hemlock to enclose garden rooms themed by color. Each enclosure and topiary was a unique expression of his sophisticated taste and keen sense of space. The garden was the setting for his exotic parties and is now open to the public for tours.
Next it’s on to explore the blooming beauty of The Water Conservation Garden in El Cajon, CA with Director, Marty Eberhardt. The garden is a joint effort by water agencies to educate the public in ways to conserve water all over the country, not just in Southern California. With bold displays, informative signs and lots of paths to wander, visitors can enjoy The Water Conservation Garden and take home tips for their own home.
In this episode of Garden Travels, Dave’s favorites include: Prostanthera, Mint Bush;Cytisus and Broom.
