Success with Hydrangeas, with Mal the Hydrangea Guy!

We are delighted to welcome hydrangea expert Mal Condon for a presentation at the Falmouth Public Library, on Tuesday evening, May 24th, at 6:30 pm! Note: this event is now full-you are welcome to put yourself on the waitlist by clicking here.

Hydrangeas continue to be very popular! Widely grown throughout Cape Cod and along much of the New England coastline, they create something special in so many gardens. Mal’s discussion will focus on the best practices for growing and maintaining hydrangeas successfully in your gardens. The lecture will include a review of the major species, a quick summary of the best performers, and an explanation of several techniques.

A lifelong gardener, Mal has been collecting, propagating, and growing hydrangeas for more than 45 years. An engineer by education and profession, he is strongly committed to the continuing development of the genus – always searching for new and better plants, evaluating their landscape performance, and finding superior ways to produce and grow them.

His Hydrangea Farm Nursery on Nantucket Island, Massachusetts was a well-known specialty nursery featuring one of the largest hydrangea collections in the Northeast. In 2014, he relocated to Yarmouthport, where he continued his passion establishing a significant new garden. Mal frequently shares his many hydrangea learnings with garden clubs, horticultural associations, and plant societies – in the USA and world-wide.

He is currently the Curator of Hydrangeas at Heritage Museums & Gardens in Sandwich, and heavily involved with the continuing expansion of the Garden’s significant collections, including the North American Hydrangea Test Garden and The Cape Cod Hydrangea Society’s Display Garden.
