Welcome Gardeners!      

Wild at Heart: Borrowed Landscapes & Wildflowers in the Garden

Presented by Emma Seniuk

On April 14th  HSSJ welcomes Emma Seniuk to HSSJ. Her “Wild at Heart” program touches on using borrowed scenery and wildflowers in a garden setting.  By using natural landscapes and floral displays as inspiration, the gardener is able to emulate and encourage self sown plants and successional blooms. Emma’s experience at the Great Dixter House and Garden in England influenced her designs that combine the best growing conditions for plants with how they look in space. She will show settings of wild plants in nature whose effect may be replicated, with work, in cultivated gardens.

Her extensive horticulture experience includes working at the Great Dixter House and Garden in East Sussex, England; Mt. Cuba Center; beekeeping; growing heirloom vegetables. She has traveled throughout Europe and Hawaii visiting gardens.
