Page Dickey, best-selling author and garden master, will be at the Greenwich Botanical Center in Cos Cob on Thursday, March 3, at 11:00am.
She will discuss her new book, Uprooted: A Gardener Reflects on Beginning Again, where she describes leaving a beloved garden of 34 years, finding a home in the northwest corner of Connecticut, and falling in love with its land.
“It’s an extremely personal book, the most personal I’ve ever written. My readers have been asking for a book explaining the move and their curiosity about starting again. What is it like to leave a garden you have had for 34 years, and loved passionately and to move on to a completely different place and environment? It’s never a clean slate. A lot of the book compares and contrasts the two gardens.
It also seemed right for the times we are experiencing,” Dickey said. “So many people’s lives
have changed during these past months. In retrospect, I believe that some change may be for the
better. Certainly, in my case, it has been.”
