Come take a walk through Bellevue Botanical Garden with George Lasch, the man who led the renovation of the famed National Perennial Alliance boarder at BBG. As we tour the garden, you will learn why George thinks some plants are more garden worthy than others, through his opinionated and hilarious lens.

George is known by many for his passion for plants, the "good, bad and why bother" series of lectures he does for the Master Gardeners and hydrangea pruning lectures at PlantAmnesty's Prune-A-Thon. He has also been shaping horticultural minds at Edmonds Community College for over 10 years, and has a lifetime's worth of experience working at public gardens throughout the US and UK.
