      Designing & Dissecting a Collector's Garden with Tovah Martin

      Collectors are a special breed and their proclivity infiltrates every aspect of their lives. Peter Wooster is every inch a collector, and his love for “one of everything” became his signature style, combining rare plants with collected objects uniquely displayed. A talented designer, he knit his collections together using bed layout, perspective, vantage points, spontaneous moments, inspired pairings, and color echoes. Tovah Martin, author of The Garden in Every Sense and Season (and myriad other books and articles) and friend of Peter will lead an exploration of the techniques that make this garden so memorable. Rob Girard, Peter’s gardener, will offer further insights. And of course, the inimitable Peter will show the collages he creates as his means of expression. Registration required.
