A great time was had by all as Kristin Green’s friends, family and fanbase packed Blithewold last Friday evening for a book signing and official roll-out of Kristin’s new book, “Plantiful: Start Small, Grow Big with 150 Plants that Spread, Self-Sow, and Overwinter. ”
“Plantiful” is available at Blithewold, where Kristin is donating a portion of the proceeds to the Mansion and Arboretum, where she serves as the interpretive horticulturalist. It is also available on Amazon.com.
Mark your calendars for Tuesday, April 8, when Kristin will discuss her book and present a gardener’s guide to opportunism followed by a demonstration on how to root tip cuttings using a Forsythe pot—a propagation tool that is simpler than an expensive greenhouse mist system, more reliable than glasses of water on the windowsill, and can be easily made from stuff stashed in the potting shed. This event will be held at 8 p.m. at Rogers Free Library, Bristol.
