Andalusia Historic House, Gardens & Arboretum announced the return of its Andalusia Garden Symposium. This year’s day-long event on Friday, May 3, features four world-renowned horticulturists speaking in Bucks County. 

The Garden Symposium brings together garden enthusiasts from near and far to hear from some of the most influential and innovative voices in the global gardening community. The four speakers are: 

  • Troy Scott Smith, head gardener from Sissinghurst Castle Garden in England
  • Dan Hinkley, the famed plantsman, garden writer and nurseryman
  • Lucy Hunter, a landscape and floral designer best known for her Flower Hunter books on seasonal floral displays
  • Stefani Bittner, an edible landscape designer and author of Harvest and The Fragrant Flower Garden

The day begins with a coffee reception and welcome, followed by lectures from the four horticulturists and then lunch. This portion of the day takes place at The Holt Center at Holy Ghost Prep to accommodate more attendees.

The Garden Symposium then continues at Andalusia Historic House, Gardens & Arboretum, where guests can enjoy an afternoon tea, book signings with the speakers, and an opportunity to explore the 50-acre gardens and grounds located on the banks of the Delaware River.

Tickets for the all-day event are $300 and are available at andalusia.org

The Garden Symposium is presented by The Letitia Glenn Briddle Society. All proceeds go toward funding summer internships in horticulture for aspiring professionals working in the field.
