Gregg Novotny Remembers Alan Chadwick, Part 3


Second visit to Covelo to get black currant cuttings for Alan in Virginia. Packing up Alan's belongings. Staff and apprentices at Virginia. Planning the gardens at New Market, Virginia, including the sanctum sanctorum and herbacious borders. Building the glasshouse. Propagating seedlings under Alan's directions. The size of the gardens there. A minor conflict with Chadick resulting in Gregg's demotion as Head Gardener, but with his continuing role in the leadership of the Virginia garden. (7:21)
