Tropicals for Temperate Gardens

Marianne gave this talk to the Maryland Horticultural Society at our January Plant Forum. The audience loved her. She was smart, engaging, charming, and very knowledgeable about her subject. She was also a pleasure to work with. Just a treat.

Excellent Garden Program at Frederick County Publi

Our organization contacted Marianne for a garden program last summer. She presented the topic “The Recycled Garden,” which was enjoyable and informative. Marianne is adept at engaging audiences because she is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and approachable. It was wonderful working with her and having her speak at the library. I’d highly recommend her as a speaker.

    Gardening friends prevailed upon me to hear Marianne Wilburn talk recently despite my tepid interest in the topic. Much to my surprise and pleasure, she was funny, knowledgeable and engaging – Willburn was comfortable with the audience and a pleasure to watch. I came away with a lot of ideas and plant suggestions to the point that my interest in gardening has been rekindled.

"Big Dreams, Small Gardens"

Jill H. Johnson from Lovettsville - 11/12/2017 12:05:28

In 4 years of booking speakers for our Master Gardener monthly lecture series, I have had the pleasure of hearing many first-rate presentations, but Marianne's recent talk on her new book was the best ever. I was contacted by at least ten MGs who said it was the best talk we had ever had. Marianne is so knowledgeable and yet so warm and engaging. Her column "The Small Town Gardener" and her book showcase her considerable writing skills, and she brings the same witty turns of phrase to her public speaking. Her enthusiasm for all things horticultural is contagious and conveying that enthusiasm, I have learned, is the the mark of a top-notch speaker.
