Madoo Conservancy: February at Madoo — Walk, S’mores, & Lectures

Gardening in February?


We’re not really doing too much this month aside from possibly shoveling and winter pruning but looks can be deceiving! Even in the dead of winter there’s lot’s going on! We are starting our seeds in the greenhouse, tending to our rose cuttings,  planning the new Camellia garden and the 25th anniversary silver garden. That’s right, Madoo is celebrating our 25th anniversary as a public garden! See below for activities this month. 

And an HAH x Madoo Presentation!

I’ll be speaking at the HAH in Bridgehampton on Sunday, February 10 at 2:00 P.M. about the history of the garden viewed through photographs taken by Robert Dash and professional photographers including: Derek Fell, Mick Hales, Rameshwar Das, Hans Namuth, Erica Lennard, Rob Cardillo and Georgia Oetker.  From installation photography to images of the fully grown gardens to views of the garden today, change as a constant is a theme that defines Madoo.

HAH Members free; Not yet members $10.

The lecture will be immediately followed by refreshments in the John LoGerfo Library located in the Bridgehampton Community House.

Winter Lecture 

Sunday, Feb. 24
12:00 P.M.
Please register HERE 


Our annual winter lecture series starts off with Timothy Tilghlman, head garder at the Untermeyer Gardens in Yonkers, NY. To celebrate our 25th anniversary as a public garden our theme this year is New Perspectives. We’ll hear from a new generation of gardeners at established public gardens, and how these horticulturalists are transforming their public institutions.

Tilghman has led an ambitious garden restoration program at Untermeyer transforming a “forgotten” masterpiece of the early Twentieth century into a must-see garden.

All lectures will take place in the summer studio with a reception to follow.
