Berkshire Botanical Garden again hosts its Cocktails in Great Gardens series, and on Friday, June 29 at 5 pm, they will be in a private garden in Kinderhook, New York. An allée of mature maple trees welcomes you to the home and gardens at this lovely Kinderhook, New York property. The main garden was conceived as a contained counterpoint to the surrounding farmland with a series of spaces, each with its own character. A kitchen garden of boxwood parterres and espaliered pears is planted with summer vegetables and herbs; the main lawn is enclosed by a boxwood and hornbeam hedge with a visual break revealing a view to the pond, fields, and mountains beyond.

Thursday, June 28, 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm – Plant Hunters: Lions and Tigers and …Xenophobic Tibetan Lamas? Oh My!
Have you ever wondered how the Douglas Fir got its name? Or how the tree’s namesake met his end by a wild bull in Hawaii? Join Steve Jackson, Mount Auburn’s Plant Records & GIS Manager, for an early evening stroll through the cemetery (580 Mount Auburn Street, Cambridge) to hear the stories of the plant hunters who often risked their lives to bring us the plants we have in Mount Auburn’s landscape. The walk will take place Thursday, June 28 at 5:30, and is $7 for Friends of Mount Auburn, $12 for general public. Register at http://mountauburn.org/event/plant-hunters-lions-and-tigers-andxenophobic-tibetan-lamas-oh-my/
