Charlie Dobbin: “Beauty and The Eats” at the Lakefield Horticultural Society

“Beauty and The Eats” will be featured at the April 8 meeting of the Lakefield Horticultural Society, 7:30 p.m. in the Marshland Centre.

Charlie Dobbin is a well-known horticulturist and landscape designer with professional gardening experience world-wide.

Charlie will speak about incorporating edible plants into your landscape. Imagine beet greens popping up between your zinnias, or Swiss chard amongst your hostas!

Maybe a trellis of morning glories twisted up with scarlet runner beans. Charlie will get our imaginative juices flowing for our 2014 garden plans!
