Cincinnati trip, new plants that you have used, etc.

Bill and Nancy Hendricks of Klyn Nursery are bringing their summer intern, Lars, from Holland and we will be talking about bulbs and news from across the ocean.  Plus we all know how interesting Bill is when it comes to plants!!

Also, Mark and Cynthia Druckenbrod will discuss their new lilies that they have developed.  Cynthia is the Director of Horticulture for Cleveland Botanical Gardens and can tell us all about the tree houses, done by TV’s tree house guru, that are on display at CBG.  Design, design, design.  Mark is the board president of the famous Lakeview Cemetery in Cleveland that is undergoing some big changes.  The gardens there are spectacular and the history of some of them just might peak your interest.

If you are new to the Ohio Chapter of APLD this is a good way to meet some of the officers and chat with fellow designers.

 Hope to see you!
