Our speaker for May is Kevin Kavanagh and the topic of his presentation is “Successful Culture of Rhododendrons and Azaleas in Ontario.” Kevin has a longstanding interest in broad-leaved evergreens more commonly associated with the deep south such as azaleas, rhododendrons, magnolias and Franklinia among others. At South Coast Gardens the hardiness of many southern species is being assessed in the garden beds surrounding the nursery. Kevin will share with us the ups and downs of the past 10 years in his efforts to “push the zone.”
Kevin Kavanagh is the owner of South Coast Gardens, a small specialty nursery and landscape design business located in the heart of Ontario’s Carolinian zone. Although an avid gardener for much of his life, Kevin spent most of his early career in the field of biodiversity conservation working most recently for The Nature Conservancy of Canada and prior to that for 15 years with World Wildlife Fund Canada.
He is a member of the Norfolk County Master Gardeners and recently joined the board of directors of the Niagara Chapter of the Rhododendron Society of Canada.
