OK Horticulture Society Spring Lecture 2008 - Cole Burrell's Winter Landscape Talk

OKLAHOMA HORTICULTURE SOCIETY SPRING LECTURE 2008
Russell Studebaker introduced Cole Burrell at the Tulsa Garden Center on Saturday. Studebaker is program chair for OK Horticulture Society. His nickname is World Famous Horticulturist and he applies his extensive experience and knowledge to garden writing for the Tulsa World and other publications as well as speaking in several states at conferences.

Cole Burrell made a dozen suggestions to perk up winter landscapes. Burrell lives in zone 7 Virginia so many of his ideas would work here as well.
