“Contained Exuberance” Opens at Berkshire Botanical Garden

The trustees and other passionate supporters of the Berkshire Botanical Garden in Stockbridge gathered on Saturday June 6 to toast blogger Margaret Roach of A Way To Garden and Bob Hyland of Loomis Creek Nursery, who designed and installed the exhibit “Contained Exuberance,” which features 11 different sets of cleverly planted containers. “They will look better in a few weeks after they have time to fill in,” said Roach who is known to be a perfectionist like her mentor, Martha Stewart. To judge from their canapes, the trustees of the garden are perfectionists too. They made all the hors d’oeuvres themselves and you’ve never seen so many trays of exquisite—and delicious—nibbles, which were passed by student volunteers from Monument Mountain High School.
