Garden Media Guild UK

Tamsin Westhorpe from Herefordshire - 03/18/2021 04:49:57

Marianne gave an engaging and inspiring Zoom presentation to members of the Garden Media Guild in February 2021. The topic was 'Tropical Plants and how to love them' which was the perfect introduction to her much anticipated book on tropical plants. The feed back was nothing but positive from Guild members and Marianne kept the group engaged for an hour and she demonstrated an incredible knowledge of plants. A thoroughly enjoyable event.

Horticultural Society of Maryland presentation, Oc

Felicia Haywood from Macon, GA - 10/20/2020 14:59:20

I very much enjoyed Marianne's online presentation. It must have been a bit of a struggle for her to juggle the technology and have no audience to interact with but she managed to deliver an entertaining and stirring presentation. Marianne's examples of gardener mavericks, the Dervaes family and Christopher Lloyd, were apt and brought home just what can be accomplished when we step outside of the box. They, along with her wonderful book Big Dreams, Small Garden, are inspirations to me.

2019 WNC Gardening Symposium in Flat Rock, NC

Ruth Gonzalez from Weaverville, NC - 10/07/2019 19:16:51

IMarianne Willburns talk was inspirational with practical advice on how to achieve the look you want by honing in on the qualities of what you love about a certain look and then figuring out how to achieve that vibe while remaining within your budget or smaller space. We were able to chat with Marianne and she was an absolutely delightful plant-lover. Within seconds she was lusting over a cryptomeria, and commenting on the colors and textures of the plants we had on display for Reems Creek Nursery at the symposium. We both bought her book and separately dived right in that evening when we got home from the symposium. I thought she was a fantastic speaker and I loved her common sense approach to gardening. Just start!
