"The Glories of Summer Bulbs"

Presented by Brent and Becky's Bulbs, in Gloucester, Virginia

From the tropical rain forest, the sunny shores of the Mediterranean, the veldt of South Africa and the slopes of the Andes, come bold, lush leaves and a myriad of stunning diverse flowers of summer bulbs.  Brent and Becky Heath, bulb growers from Gloucester, Virginia and owners of Brent and Becky’s Bulbs, will give you ideas on how to weave these spectacular bulb plants into your own relaxing, tropical garden getaway.  They will show you with breath-taking slides how to integrate summer bulbs with annuals, perennials, ground covers, trees and shrubs to create your own ultimate patio planter, window box, living sculpture or jungle.  You’ll also gather ideas on how to build the ultimate Evening Garden including luminescent, light colored, fragrant flowers.  Let’s plan and plant something different this summer.

Brent Heath, co-owner of Brent and Becky’s Bulbs in Gloucester, VA has been awarded Gold Medals from many organizations in the horticultural industry.  He is a daffodil hybridizer as well as a naturalist.  He helps other gardeners understand that gardening in an earth-friendly way benefits the bees, birds and butterflies as well as the plants in the garden while preserving the earth for future generations.
