Legends in the Garden, Who in the World is Nellie Stevens? We all know Jane Bath, but did you ever wonder who Nellie R. Stevens or George Tabor was? Linda Copeland has the scoop. In her presentation she will tell us the stories behind these people and many more, how she accomplished the research to write the Legends book and some information that was not included in it.

She lives and gardens in Atlanta, Georgia, where she has served as a volunteer and board member of the Atlanta History Center, the Southeastern Flower Show, the Georgia Perennial Plant Association, Gardens for Peace, and is currently serving on the Board of the Cherokee Garden Library.
