Join us for the first lecture in our brand new Garden Lecture Series!

Mark Weathington, Director and Curator of Collections, NC Arboretum

Join Mr. Weathington as he discusses topics from his new publication, Gardening in the South: The Complete Homeowners Guide. Topics covered include soils, climate, design, plants and pests – everything you need for success in the garden.

His passion for plants carries Mark around the world in search of new plants for gardens. High-energy presentations summed up by his personal mantra, “Life is Too Short for Boring Plants”, inspire audiences to get out and garden.

Mark Weathington is the Director of the JC Raulston Arboretum at NC State University where he is passionate in his work to connect plants to people.  His career in public horticulture has also included the Norfolk Botanical Garden where he served as Director of Horticulture and the Atlanta Botanical Garden as a horticulturist.

Mark travels extensively searching for new plants to diversify the American landscape and lecturing on a variety of topics in horticulture to further the JC Raulston Arboretum’s vision of “Planning and Planting a Better World.”  His explorations and speaking engagements have taken him to China, Taiwan, Japan, Ecuador, Europe, Mexico, New Zealand, and throughout the US.
