Green Garden Gifts: December 21 … Yew Dell Botanical Garden

Yew Dell Botanical Gardens is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a Preservation Project of the Garden Conservancy, a national non-profit dedicated to preserving the Nation’s most exceptional gardens  It seems there is always something happening at the gardens, which are located in Crestwood, just east of Louisville.   One of my favorite event is the sculpture show, featuring works of many sculptors placed on display in the gardens.  Yew Dell Botanical Gardens 6th Annual Garden Sculpture Show coming up in 2013 is May 17-July 28.  Gardeners can find information about plants well-suited to growing conditions in Kentucky by checking out the annual Theodore Klein Plant Awards.  Click here for more information.  The award was named for Yew Dell’s founder.  As a gift, you could become a Yew Dell member, or treat a friend to a trip to see the sculpture show, or any of the other special activities the garden will be offering in the coming months.  You can also befriend them on Facebook for up-to-the-minute news.
