WILTON, Conn. -- Gardening expert and author Sydney Eddison will present “Change: The Passage of Time in the Garden” at the Wilton Historical Society on Sept. 18 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“I became fascinated by the subject of change in the life of gardens and gardeners in the 1980s . . . . I had already been gardening for more than a quarter of a century and had come face to face with how enormous some shrubs had become and how areas that had once been exposed to the sun had gradually become shady," said Eddison. "Another thing I noticed was that rocks I had once pried out of new garden beds seemed bigger and heavier than they had before. For gardens and gardeners, time is the fourth dimension. Willy nilly, change happens. How we respond to it depends on our temperaments and on our gardening styles, but respond we must. And the decisions we make as we go along are what gives each garden its special character. This program shows how my garden has evolved."
Eddison will draw from her extensive experience to offer practical advice for turning gardening into a list of chores into an enjoyable activity. She has authored seven books on gardening and one of poetry.
Admission for the presentation is $20 for members and $30 for non-members. A catered lunch is included. To reserve a space, email
