Dan Long, "Grow Up! Using Vines and Climbers in Your Garden"  

Whether you're planning an expansive suburban landscape or looking for
that special patio plant, there's a place for vines in your garden. The use of vines and climbers in formal and natural garden settings will be discussed with an emphasis on clematis. Learn about an amazing array of vines, both classic and new, suited to a wide variety of growing conditions in all colors of the rainbow.


Dan Long is the owner of Brushwood Nursery, a mail order nursery
specializing in clematis and other vines. He is also an author and a past instructor at Longwood Gardens and has lectured and taught at seminars for over 15 years. By focusing on vines and climbers, he has gained extensive knowledge and images on the subject, which are shared in his presentations designed to inform and inspire the audience.
