Your afternoon will be full of fun, wine, appetizers, and inspiration as she explains how to design a deer-resistant garden without resorting to fences or pouring concrete in despair.
Sharing ideas from her latest book Deer-Resistant Design: fence-free gardens that thrive despite the deer (Timber Press, 2019) as well as years of personal experience, this unique, interactive presentation will leave you encouraged, well informed, and excited for your next shopping trip to the nursery.
Books will be available for purchase and book signing!

Born in England, Karen grew up with a trowel in her hand.
After moving to the Pacific Northwest in 1996 She joined one of the leading garden nurseries as a garden plant specialist. Helping hundreds of customers create beautiful combinations of plants to enhance their outdoor living spaces was always a delight. Ten years later Karen established “Le jardinet” in order to provide a service that takes all the time, stress and guesswork out of the design process for you.
Karen taught container gardening at Edmonds Community College, and continues to teach both container and landscape design in occasional workshops and events as well offering a range of online learning opportunities .
With excellent reviews on the Great Garden Speakers website, Karen frequently gives presentations at flower & garden shows, trade conferences, horticultural organizations, nurseries and garden clubs.
Karen’s articles and designs have been featured in many national gardening publications including Fine Gardening, Country Gardens, Sunset, and Garden Design. She have co-authored two books with Christina Salwitz: the award winning Fine Foliage (St. Lynn’s Press, 2013) and the highly acclaimed Gardening with Foliage First (Timber Press, 2017), and a new book Deer-Resistant Design was just released in July 2019 (Timber Press).
