Dan Hinkley, former owner of Heronswood is keynote speaker at Kruckeberg annual meeting

The Kruckeberg Botanic Garden Foundation welcomes plantsman Dan Hinkley to speak at the Garden’s annual Members Meeting on January 12. 

His talk entitled (Too Often) Overlooked Plants for Pacific Northwest Gardens will explore some of his favorite trees, shrubs, and perennials that are inexplicably absent from most maritime Northwest gardens. The presentation will take place after a short meeting and election of board officers for the Foundation.

A world-class plant hunter, Dan has collected plants around the globe and introduced new species to horticulture through his well-known nursery, Heronswood. Though Heronswood closed in 2006, his ongoing explorations continue to add interesting new species to the palette of plants available to Northwest gardeners. Dan is well known as a writer and lecturer, and his talk is sure to inspire gardeners new and old.

The Meeting will be held on January 12 at 7pm in the Shoreline City Hall council chambers. City Hall is located at 17500 Midvale Ave N, Shoreline.

The Meeting is open to the public, and all are welcome! Entrance is free for Garden members, with a suggested donation for non-members.

For more information see the Kruckeberg website or contact the Garden at 206-546-1281.
