At 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 4 Camden Garden Club’s Winter Horticulture Series will welcome guest speaker Carol Yee of Carol’s Collectibles in the Picker Room of Camden Public Library. Her presentation entitled “Rare and Unusual Shrubs and Plants Suitable for Our Area” will take a look at some new varieties and lesser known oldies to fill that inevitable hole in your perfect garden come spring.
Carol’s Collectibles is a small specialty nursery begun in 1996 in Ashford, Connecticut, and moved to Swanville in 2009. Yee’s interest in the unusual (sometimes bizarre) forms and habits of different plants leads her to offer eclectic selections of new and unusual varieties as well as the tried and true.

The weekly Winter Horticulture Series is free and open to the public and will continue on Tuesdays throughout February. Guests and prospective members are always welcome.
