On July 13 British plantsman Adrian Bloom will visit Elm Bank for two public events. A lifelong gardener and past owner of ‘Blooms Nurseries Ltd.’ and ‘Blooms of Bressingham’, he now manages the‘Foggy Bottom’ garden in Norfolk, England.
The public is invited to a 9 a.m. continental breakfast in the James Crockett Memorial Garden with Bloom Wednesday immediately followed by a visit to the Bressingham Garden for a hands-on look at the garden, led by its designer.
Beginning in 2002, Adrian Bloom began planting demonstration gardens in America, both to illustrate his design principles and promote his plants. In August 2007, he accepted an invitation to install a garden at Elm Bank. This very intriguing perennial garden is 4000 square feet.
At 7 p.m. Bloom will talk about his original vision for the garden and how he adjusted that vision to meet American – and New England – sensibilities and realities.
