is something magical about a small garden that is at once inviting and
mysterious. We feel drawn in to explore - to enter another world and
linger over its treasures at every turn. These gardens embrace one
with a sense of the personal and the intimate. This year's Davidson
Horticultural Symposium will focus on design ideas and plant
combinations that will help us make the most of every bit of garden
space we have.
Our experts will provide creative solutions to the challenges of
building gardens that can do many things: provide a place to
entertain; play with the dog or kids; retreat with a good book;
restore our souls; and all in a small footprint. They will illustrate
how to design interesting garden spaces in the scaled-down world in
which we live.
