October 23: Nikola Warnock “An Introduction to Alpine Troughs and Scree Gardening”

nikola warnock_0690Nikola has enjoyed gardening and nature from a young age. She majored in sculpture at Mount Allison University and believes that gardening is a very sculptural experience.
She has her own company called “Alpine Trough” where she gives workshops on trough making and other fun projects.  She also does garden design and installation of alpine type gardens.

Until a couple of years ago, Nikola had 23 acres with a large perennial garden and an almost half acre scree garden and a variety of water gardens. The garden was featured in all of the Canadian gardening magazines and was on numerous garden club tours and bus tours from Canada and the States. The garden has been the subject of television features and shows.

Now she and her husband and their 2 dogs are enjoying a downsize to a residential sized
lot with a brand new home that they designed…and a brand new scree garden. They travel extensively and are approaching country 200!

Nikola is a Master Gardener with the Lake Simcoe group, and was the President of the Lake Simcoe South Shore Horticultural Society.  She has also been the Director of OHA District 5.
