We’re excited to welcome lifestyle expert, garden guru, and author Martha Stewart to our Gardens. She and Kevin Sharkey, executive vice president and executive director of design for the Martha Stewart Brand, will share expert flower growing, gathering, and arranging insights from the newly released Martha’s Flowers: A Practical Guide to Growing, Gathering, and Enjoying.
Martha and Kevin will discuss Martha’s Flowers, her 90th full-length book and her first dedicated solely to this subject. Serving as a handbook for flower gardeners and enthusiasts of all skill levels, Martha’s Flowers is bursting with beautiful photographs of displays in Martha’s home. The book is divided by season, with each section highlighting blooms that flourish during that time of year and applied guidance for growing and creating stunning arrangements. Martha’s Flowers skillfully details her lifelong love of flowers that began at a young age in her family garden, to the best practices she applies to her voluminous flower gardens today.
Join us for this exciting event, which will be moderated by Longwood’s President and CEO Paul B. Redman.
