The Theatre Garden is a perfect example of this change: once a perennial xeric garden, it has transformed into a small annual display garden over time, but will soon return to its original perennial xeric garden status. Join Longwood Outdoor Landscape Manager Roger Davis to explore the history and the future of the Theatre Garden. Davis explains how and why the garden will be returned to a perennial xeric planting, sharing top tips for xeric gardening you can apply at home. You’ll even enjoy a hands-on experience—and play a part in this garden’s refresh process—as you help finish its container plantings.
