Member Exclusive!! The Ferns of Longwood Gardens – A Very Special Garden Tour with Karl Gercens 08/12/2020; 6pm-7:30pm
Note: This special tour is restricted to CHS Hort Members Only.
When you need a bit of relief from a South Carolina summer then surround yourself with the lush and leafy coolness of some of your favorite ferns. Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA has one of the most beautiful collections of ferns from around the world to inspire your Pteridomania. Join Karl Gercens, Longwood’s Conservatory Manager, as he takes us on a virtual tour of the multi-acre glasshouse collections with a special emphasis on the fern collection (which is filled with colors, textures and amazing sizes you might not have even thought existed in the world of ferns!) Karl has been tending the conservatory displays at Longwood for exactly half his life this year, but his passion for horticulture came from the steamy Mississippi Delta region. He knows hot and humid and how to survive it…. (by traveling to over 32 countries and visiting 3000+ gardens so far!). This will be an entertaining and educational adventure we can all enjoy from our armchair!
