One of the joys of living in the Tredyffrin Easttown part of the Main Line is being able to enjoy Jenkins Arboretum. There is always something going on and the early spring is a wonderful time to enjoy the Azaleas and Rhododendrons for which they are famous.
Recently, a new executive director was appointed, Tom Smarr, and he will be sharing the history of the arboretum at a lecture at Easttown Library, another favourite place of mine located on First Avenue in Berwyn on Tuesday January 28th at 11.00 am. Register here.
The property was originally home to H. Lawrence and Elizabeth Phillipe Jenkins and since then has been under the care of many wonderful gardeners. Jenkins Arboretum is famous for hybridizing new azaleas and rhododendrons. Tom Smarr will discuss some of the unusual and interesting plants growing in the gardens and mention some future projects visitors will be able to enjoy. Don't forget you do need to register.
