Garden designers and planting enthusiasts alike are anticipating the fifth annual "Planters: On + Off The Ground V" competition this Saturday, June 23rd at The LongHouse Reserve (4:30-6 PM). This year’s event—judged by landscape painter April Gornik, architect Fred Stelle, and famed Food Network host Ina Garten—will also include a people’s choice award, where attendees can pick their favorite garden container from 29 participants.
LongHouse founder Jack Larsen, co-chairs Elizabeth Lear and Edwina von Gal, and the LongHouse Reserve Garden Committee will serve as hosts. Connecticut’s Broken Arrow Nursery is set to present a selection of rare plant material for sale, the proceeds of which will partially benefit the LongHouse Reserve.
