Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore College (January 8, 2008)

Andrew Bunting, curator of the Scott Arboretum, is featured in Fine Gardening’s ‘magazine extras’ video at http://www.taunton.com/finegardening/. The video clip titled ‘Selecting Trees for Structure’ features some of the magnificent and distinctive structures of specimen trees found at the Scott Arboretum. Andrew provides eloquent explanations about unique characteristics of these beauties and why you might like them in your garden. Fine Gardening produced this video clip to coincide with Andrew Bunting’s informative article title “Selecting Trees for Structure” published in Fine Gardening magazine February 2008. Fine Gardening has begun posting videos on their website to provide a visual explanation in addition to the articles published in their magazine. These videos are often interviews and demonstrations with the authors of the articles. The Scott Arboretum is an educational garden of ideas and suggestions. Covering more than 300 acres of the Swarthmore College Campus and exhibiting over 4,000 different kinds of plants, the Arboretum displays some of the best trees, shrubs, perennials, and annuals for use in the Delaware Valley. Established in 1929 as a living memorial to Arthur Hoyt Scott, the Arboretum is open to the public year-round free of charge, from dawn to dusk. Adam Levine in the November/December 2002 issue of Garden Design magazine described the Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore College as "the most beautiful campus in America." Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, please call the Arboretum Offices at 610- 328-8025.
