With Sue DuBrava and Chuck Doughty, owners of Cochato Nurseries, horticulturists, and rare and unique plant enthusiasts
In the early 1990’s Chuck Doughty and Sue DuBrava purchased five acres of land to develop a nursery. Fast forward to today, Cochato Nurseries has been written up in many gardening magazines and books as a “must-see” destination. Their nursery offers beautiful display gardens with a wisteria covered pergola, a koi pond, waterfall and many very interesting and beautiful plant specimens—including a wide array of shade-loving plants.
Chuck and Sue will discuss the unique trees, shrubs and perennials they work with daily and describe how to create a beautiful garden of any size that is suited to shade.
Chuck recently retired from Northeastern University where he developed an Arboretum at the main campus in Boston. Chuck is also a member of the Horticultural Club of Boston, as well as the American Hosta Society, The New England Hosta Society, The Rock Garden Club and American Conifer Society. Being an avid photographer, he has traveled to the Rio Negro in the Amazon 9 times, Cuba twice, as well as to Iceland and Sicily.
