Description

Join us for tulip time at Brandywine Cottage, the magnificent private garden of celebrated plantsman David Culp.  His lovingly tended two-acre Downingtown, Pa. treasure is listed in the Smithsonian Institution Garden Archives.

David is a celebrated gardener, tulip-lover, and author of the acclaimed “The Layered Garden.” This Longwood Gardens instructor is also a snowdrop expert, creator of the Brandywine Hybrid strain of hellebores, and serves on Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Gold Medal Plant Selection Committee.  For this rain or shine, rare private garden tour, meet at TheDCH and ride together in a 24-passenger van. We will enjoy light refreshments on the patio before we head back to TheDCH. Space is limited, register early.

One of the best ways to learn about gardening is to directly experience the gardens of other plant lovers. “Learning from Great Gardens” is TheDCH’s new tour series that treats guests to once-in-a-lifetime strolls through some of the area’s most superb private gardens, guided by the gardeners who created them. 

The series continues with Open Space, Sweeping Beds on May 21, and Urban Collector’s Dream on June 25.
