Camden Garden Club has announced that the annual Winter Horticulture series will be hosted by Camden Public Library on Zoom this year. The five weekly programs are on Tuesdays beginning Jan. 26 at 9:30 a.m. and will continue through Feb. 23. The first speaker, Jan Limmen, will cover Bulbs and Tuberous Plants. Email jpierce@librarycamden.org to request a Zoom link to attend.

Dutch-born Limmen moved to the U.S. as a young man and worked as a landscaper in the Baltimore-Washington area for over 35 years. Searching for a more stress-free lifestyle and finding the climate of Midcoast Maine reminiscent of his boyhood village on Holland’s North Sea, Jan (pronounced “Yon”) and his wife Rosemary relocated to Tenants Harbor in 2006. Since then they have rebuilt their cottage, built a barn and started three Blue Tulip businesses on their 2.4 acres. Limmen’s Blue Tulip Landscaping provides landscaping advice and services to a group of local clients that includes the Knox Museum and Marshall Point Lighthouse.
