2019 NHS Spring Symposium

Our unique climate allows us to enjoy each season to its fullest. Our long summer days provide for lush and beautiful plantings giving intense displays of floral delight. The fluctuating weather and cool temperatures of autumn trigger brilliant displays of fall color and bright fruits. Winter brings our gardens structure to the forefront followed by a nearly unending spring full of freshness and flowers. This year’s symposium speakers will highlight our sophisticated palette of plants and provide ideas and tips on using them successfully for a garden of beauty and color in every season.
