Discover the Magic of the Winter Garden at Darien Library on Oct. 12

As cold temperatures creep in, Darien Library is pleased to present a program that will help new and seasoned gardeners design a beautiful winter garden.

Even while stripped of summer foliage and flowers, a winter garden can be a striking sight. In “The Magic of the Winter Garden,” garden designer, speaker, and author Jana Milbocker will share inspiration and expertise on how to design a garden for winter interest; choose the best trees, shrubs, and perennials; and group them together to create arresting vignettes.

This virtual event will take place on Tuesday, October 12 at 7 p.m. Register on Darien Library’s website at www.darienlibrary.org/event/5173.
