My gardener, Shaun Kass guest blogs from the Woody Plant Conference

A few weeks ago, my gardener, Shaun Kass, attended the annual Woody Plant Conference held at the lovely campus of Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania.Due to the success of their Perennial Plant Conference, the sponsoring institutions felt a need to educate and promote the use of woody plants and organized this event thirteen years ago.  It draws nursery and garden center personnel, landscape designers, horticulturists, and avid gardeners.  Shaun enjoys attending gatherings such as this one to expand his vast knowledge of horticulture.  It's also a reunion of sorts, as many of his friends and former colleagues attend these events, as well.  He was kind enough to take these photos and share them with all of us.  Please enjoy.
