'Vintage Wisconsin Gardens: A History of Home Gardening' Book Talk in Madison

In "Vintage Wisconsin Gardens: A History of Home Gardening," author Lee Somerville introduces readers to the region's ornamental gardens of the 19th and early 20th centuries, showcasing the "vernacular" gardens created by landscaping enthusiasts for their own use and pleasure.

Somerville will be at Olbrich Botanical Gardens to give a presentation based on 'Vintage Wisconsin Gardens.' The presentation is titled "A History of Home Gardening" and is sponsored by Madison Area Master Gardeners Association and Wisconsin Hardy Plant Society. A book signing will follow.

Somerville is a landscape historian and master gardener. Originally from Liverpool, England, her home for the past 35 years has been northeastern Wisconsin.
