Johanna Silver, Garden Editor of Sunset Magazine, will talk about her new book and the experience of working with Ruth Bancroft and her legacy of dry garden plants. Dry-gardening pioneer Ruth Bancroft grew a private landscape so remarkable, it spurred the founding of the Garden Conservancy. Today Bancroft’s masterpiece has become one of America’s most acclaimed public gardens. What makes this waterwise haven so noteworthy – and so relevant for today’s home gardener? At its heart, the Ruth Bancroft Garden is a testament to fearless planting.
