Mid-South Hosta Society: Tom Pellett, Artist and Garden Designer Surveys His Creations

March 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Rock Star of Memphis Garden Designers is going home to South Carolina.  Tom Pellett’s final lecture as a Memphian will occur Thursday March 21 at 7:00 PM to the Mid-South Hosta Society.  His designs have graced Dixon Gallery and Gardens, The Memphis Botanic Garden and many private homes throughout our region.  Rather understated and modest, Tom planned gardens with gardeners as he wanted to help them have the garden they dreamed of, not to impose one on them.  His plant knowledge seemed boundless as he exercised his craft in garden design using more than three dimensions. After all, gardening taps the fourth dimension of time.  Tom is an artist in two dimensions as well, sketching and painting gardens, people, and architecture locally and on his travels.

Come hear this much beloved man as he surveys his time in Memphis since 1983 and says good-bye to a multitude of garden lovers and artistic friends.

Refreshment are at 6:30 p.m.  Visitors are welcome.
