An Afternoon with Daniel J. Hinkley
Take Two: Windcliff
Teacher, writer, lecturer, plant explorer. consultant, nurseryman, naturalist, gardener. Dan Hinkley has achieved the pinnacle of success in all these areas and is recognized worldwide as a giant in the field of horticulture. Continuing a long tradition of presentations by world-renowned horticultural experts, the Friends of the Frelinghuysen Arboretum is proud to host Dan Hinkley at the Haggerty Education Center.
As creator of the famed Heronswood Garden and Nursery near Seattle, Hinkley has explored remote corners of the globe in search of new plants to expand the ever-growing offerings in his, and ultimately our own gardens. A visit to Heronswood, Hinkley’s first garden, was a never to be forgotten experience of strolling through one beautiful garden room after another. The gardens were creative, environmentally sensitive and botanically stunning, drawing visitors from around the world.
Hinkley will share with us the joys and tribulations of creating his current garden, Windcliff. Heronswood was primarily a woodland shade garden and the new garden, Windcliff, is located on yes, a windy cliff. New plants, a different site, but with the same unequalled sense of design coupled with stunning views and intimate pathways. This is a plantsman’s garden but contemporary and harmonious in design, with art and handicrafts complementing the stunning horticultural displays.
