Enjoy a virtual lecture and Q&A session with author, gardener and nurseryman Dan Hinkley, whose new book, Windcliff, takes the reader from his formative years as a young lad in northern Michigan through his first garden-making experience at Heronswood Nursery in Kingston, WA, to his current private garden, Windcliff, in Indianola, WA. Through observations of the evolution of his garden, he reflects on its failures as well as its successes, the design principles he has garnered during 50-plus years of cultivating plants and the people he has interacted with along the way. It is the story of a journey virtually all of us take as gardeners, seen through the lens of someone with a lifelong obsession with plants and an awe for the perfection and majesty of the natural world.

Dan Hinkley was born in the highlands of North Central Michigan. He received a BS in ornamental horticulture and horticulture education from Michigan State University and an MS in urban horticulture from the University of Washington. While teaching horticulture at Edmonds Community College, he and his partner, Robert L. Jones, began Heronswood Nursery, near Kingston, WA. Devoted to introducing rare and unusual plants to North American gardeners, this endeavor led Hinkley to spend years exploring the world's wilds. He has written for a number of periodicals, is a contributing editor to Horticulture Magazine and has appeared often on Martha Stewart Living television as a gardening correspondent, as well as on PBS NOVA. He has authored several books, including The Explorers Garden: Rare and Unusual Perennials and The Explorers Garden: Shrubs and Vines from the Four Corners of the World, both of which received Book of the Year Awards from the American Horticultural Society. He has received numerous awards, most recently the Perennial Plant Association Award of Merit for contributions to the advancement of the perennials plant industry.
