Creating climate change gardens and the special role of Irises
An illustrated lecture presented by Richard Hebda, BC Iris Society President, Curator Emeritus, Royal BC Museum and Climate adaptation expert.
British Columbia’s climate is changing rapidly with warming winter temperatures, summer droughts and a longer growing season. Learn strategies and techniques to adapt your garden to the future and keep it beautiful. Discover the roles that remarkably diverse irises can play in our future climate change gardens. It’s time to start transforming our gardens.
No admission charge for BC Iris Society and HCP members.
