From Phillip Watson:
My talk is titled, GARDEN MAGIC, and will feature
images of gardens I have designed including cottage environs, vast
estates, Versailles-type parterres, water features, fanciful pathways
and patios, bountiful flower borders, container plantings, woodland
situations, and my own private retreat. My book, GARDEN MAGIC, will be
available for purchase and signing. My first book, PLEASURE GARDENS,
will also be available.I received my degree in horticulture from
Mississippi State University and enjoyed continuing education in the
Netherlands, France, and England where I was mentored by English garden
doyenne, Rosemary Verey. I was born In Lexington, Mississippi,
birthplace of the 4-H Club, and credit that upbringing with much of my
inspiration.For the past eighteen years, I have been a garden
expert and presenter on QVC for Cottage Farms Nursery. Phillip Watson
Designs Inc. is my garden design firm with clients from Mississippi to
Manhattan and from Palm Beach to Aspen. Publications include the
aforementioned books as well as pieces in Architectural Digest,
Traditional Home, and Veranda. Judgeships include the Philadelphia
Flower Show and The International Rose Trials at the Biltmore estate. I
currently garden and reside in West Chester, PA.
