Professional gardener Colleen Plimpton to be featured at Stratford Library Event

The talk is free and open to the public

STRATFORD - The Stratford Library will continue its  “Sunday Afternoon Talks,” a monthly series of informative and entertaining talks with professional gardener Colleen Plimpton at 2 p.m. April 10.
"The popular program invites notable locals to speak in an informal atmosphere on a wide range of topics," according to a statement.
Plimpton’s springtime program, “Hello My Garden!” will also kick-off “National Library Week,” the statement said.
“Sunday Afternoon Talks” is free and open to the public.

"During the latter stages of an initial career as a clinical social worker, Colleen Plimpton switched gears and entered a part-time gardening track at the New York Botanical Garden," the statement said. "Her goal, subsequent to years of gardening all over the United States, was to become a professional gardener."

Plimpton is a member of Garden Writers Association, the Federated Garden Clubs of America, Tri-State Hosta Society, Mad Gardeners, The Nature Conservancy, The Garden Conservancy, Highstead Arboretum, the Connecticut Horticultural Society, the New York Botanical Garden and many other groups, the statement said.

For more information call the library’s Public Relations & Programming Office at 203-385-4162 or visit
The series will conclude on May 15 with historian Mark Albertson.
