"Wild Gardener" date moved to May 28 Print

Award-winning author, illustrator and gardener Peter Loewer will share his gardening expertise in a talk titled "The Wild Gardener" at 5 p.m., Tuesday, May 28, instead of May 14, at the Canton Branch Library.


The lecture is based on Loewer’s book of the same name (The Wild Gardener, Stackpole Books, 1991), which was selected as one of the 75 Great American Garden Books by the American Horticultural Society. Illustrated with color slides, Loewer’s talk will touch on both rare and common plants, including native wildflowers. Loewer has written more than 30 books on gardening and natural history. Many of Loewer’s books are available through the Haywood County Public Library.


All are welcome to attend this free event. For additional information on Loewer, visit his website at www.thewildgardener.com. For more information on the upcoming event, call the Canton Branch Library at 648-2924.
