Join fellow garden enthusiasts and book lovers as they discuss books about plants, nature, and the environment. “Nature’s Narratives”is a book discussion group sponsored by the Scott Arboretum wherereaders come together to discuss a book once a month and share in thereading experience.

Old Herbaceous: Novel of the Garden byReginald Arkell is a classic British novel of the garden, with a titlecharacter as outsized and unforgettable as P. G. Wodehouse’s immortalbutler, Jeeves. Born at the dusk of the Victorian era, Bert Pinnegar,an awkward orphan child with one leg a tad longer than the other,rises from inauspicious schoolboy days spent picking wildflowers anddodging angry farmers to become the legendary head gardener “OldHerbaceous,” the most esteemed flower-show judge in the county and afamed horticultural wizard capable of producing dazzling Aprilstrawberries from the greenhouse and the exact morning glories his Ladyspies on the French Riviera, “so blue, so blue it positively hurts.”Sprinkled with nuggets of gardening wisdom, Old Herbaceous is awitty comic portrait of the most archetypal—and crotchety—headgardener ever to plant a row of bulbs at a British country house.

The discussions are free and open to the public.Participants will need to read each month’s selection prior to thediscussion. Refreshments and coffee will be provided. RSVP online orcall 610-328-8025.

Books will not be supplied, but one copy of each is available in the Scott Horticultural Library for check-out and members of the Scott Arboretum enjoy lending priviledges. Call to register 610-328-8025. Limited to 12.
