Our speaker, Julie Boudreau, will talk about relatively easy plants to grow in our rock gardens, with a special focus on smaller native plants.
Julie Boudreau is a horticulturist who trained at the Institut de technologie agroalimentaire in Saint-Hyacinthe, Québec, and now teaches horticulture at the Centre de formation horticole of Laval. An accomplished writer and educator, she has published many gardening books and hosted various radio and television shows.
Julie is above all a gardening enthusiast whose passionate interest in everything about plants leads her to explore and promote all things related to gardening, such as garden design, botany, ecology, and mini-forests. Julie loves to eat the vegetables and fruits she grows organically. She is “epicurious” and fascinated by Latin names.
