Meet the Authors of Cold-Hardy Fruit and Nuts

June 4, 2022, 2:00 PM

In the Romantic tradition of Andrew Jackson Downing and his still-consulted work, The Fruits and Fruit Trees of America (1845), Allyson Levy and Scott Serano will be at Innisfree to chat with visitors about their brand-new book, Cold Hardy Fruits and Nuts: 50 Easy-to-Grow Plants of the Organic Home Garden or Landscape (March 2022, Chelsea Green Publishing). Like Downing, this pair of artist-gardeners use their Hudson Valley garden as a living laboratory, but they’ve gone a step further and made theirs, Hortus Arboretum and Botanic Gardens in Stone Ridge, into a living textbook open to the public. Allyson and Scott will have copies of their book as well as a few choice plants available for sale, so stop by and see how your garden can easily become more delicious.
