Presenter: Joann Vieira, Director of Horticulture

Many of the gardens at Tower Hill have been purposefully designed to allow the professional staff a chance to paint a fresh scene, and create a new mood, each year with artful plant combinations. These annual and seasonal changes require all the skills that define the field of horticulture - the combination of the art and science of growing plants. It's not enough to simply choose colors that look good together in the nursery in April - many other factors go into selecting combinations that will go from alluring in April to awe-inspiring in August. Spend an hour with Horticulture Director, Joann Vieira learning about where the horticulture team at Tower Hill derives their inspiration for fresh displays; how they balance the science of growing plants with the art of color and texture; and how space and time influence their choices.
