The Connecticut Horticultural Society welcomes Timothy Tilghman, who will present “Untermyer Gardens: Past, Present & Future” at 7 p.m. Feb. 17 on Zoom. The virtual discussion is followed by a Q&A.

Tilghman, Head Gardener at Untermyer Gardens Conservancy, walks us through this famous property, its recent restoration of its 43 acres in Yonkers, NY, and how it is cared for today by Untermyer Gardens Conservancy.

In 1899, Samuel Untermyer bought Greystone, the former estate of Samuel Tilden. During the 41 years that Untermyer owned Greystone, he transformed the gardens and greenhouses into some of America’s most famous gardens. The Conservancy was founded in 2011 and is working with the City of Yonkers to facilitate the restoration of Untermyer Gardens. Untermyer Park and Gardens is a public park in the city of Yonkers.

The conference is free for members and $10 for non-members. For more information or for non-members to register, visit www.cthort.org.
