Walks with the Gardeners: Growing and Propagation Areas


Wave Hill House

Inspired by the recent publication of Nature into Art: The Gardens of Wave Hill, this series of walks offers an insider’s view of horticulture at Wave Hill, and an opportunity to have a dialog with the gardeners about growing techniques, garden design and interesting plants at Wave Hill. Wave Hill Gardener Christopher Bivens leads this tour of the working areas usually seen only by our staff. Explore the propagation greenhouse, the potting shed and the various growing spaces under glass including the cold frames and the heated hoop-house. Beyond the greenhouse, see all the nooks and crannies used as overwintering quarters for bulbs, tubers and many of the tender plants which ornament the grounds in summer.

Free with admission to the grounds.
