The Oklahoma Horticultural Society is hosting two events with internationally renowned plantsman, Tony Avent. He has traveled the world in search of new and rare plants for North American gardens. Gardeners eagerly await his Plant Delights catalog each year for its hilarious and often irreverent prose and its outstanding covers, which are filled with cartooned satire modified with horticultural overtones.
On March 19th, Avent will present “From Exploration to Exploitation: The Road from Plant Discovery to Market” at 6:30 p.m. at the Tulsa Garden Center, which also co-sponsors the event. On March 20th, Avent will be in Oklahoma City at the Zoo, giving a presentation on “Landscaping in Drifts of One: A Focus on Plant Combinations” at 1:00 p.m. Avent’s entertaining speaking style will keep everyone entertained.
