Garden lecture

WATERFORD — The 15th annual Sheena Fraser Garden Lecture will take place at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 5, at the Waterford Library.

The topic will be “The Bones of an English Garden: How to Apply the English Style to Your Own Garden Space,” presented by Edith Ellis, MCN, MCL, proprietor of Sunnyside Gardens in Turner.

Ellis is a Maine certified nursery and landscape professional and a graduate of Southern Maine Community College, with a degree in plant and soil technology. She has taught about herbaceous plants at SMCC and through adult education in many towns and has been a Master Gardener instructor. She was executive director of the Maine Landscape and Nursery Association for 15 years.

The Sheena Fraser garden lectures are supported by an endowment created by the family and friends of Sheena Fraser, a Waterford resident and a native of England. Fraser’s love of plants and her garden across from the Waterford Library made the endowment a significant tribute after her untimely death.

As well, each year books on gardening and related topics are added to the Sheena Fraser Collection in her memory. The special collection now contains more than 100 books on landscaping, vegetable gardening, perennials and annuals.

The program is free and the public is invited.
