Brandywine Cottage - Celebrating 25 years!

The Layered Garden

This lecture, The Layered Garden by David Culp, shows gardeners how to recreate the majestic display of his beloved Brandywine Cottage. It contains a basic lesson in layering—how to choose the correct plants by understanding how they grow and change throughout the seasons, how to design a layered garden, and tips on maintaining a layered garden. To illustrate how layering works, Culp will take you on a virtual tour through each part of his celebrated garden. The lecture culminates with his signature plants for all four seasons.
