ABOUT THE SHOW
The 2014 Summer Show at the Krohn Conservatory features a landscape filled with summer annuals and edible plants.Included among the plants are fruits and vegetables, edible trees and shrubs, and new, top rated plants from All America Selections.The show demonstrates how a carefully planned landscape design can create a residential garden that is both attractive and productive. The show designer is Josh Hill, horticulturist at Krohn Conservatory.
Krohn would like to thank Krohn supporter and event partner Meghan Fronduti of Tower Garden and Juice Plus for her support in the summer show at Krohn.
