Her talk will focus on her book “Tennessee & Kentucky Garden Guide: The Best Plants for a Tennessee and Kentucky Garden.”

“We are thrilled to have Ms. Lowe as part of this spring’s lecture series,” said Brian Coutts, Department Head for Library Public Services at Western Kentucky University. “It’s that time of year to be thinking about the garden and plants outdoors, so what better person than well-known author and gardener Judy Lowe to speak on the topic.”

According to Coutts, Lowe began her garden writing career serving first as the garden editor at the Chattanooga Free Press which later became the Chattanooga Times-Free Press. After a move to Boston, she became an editor at the Christian Science Monitor. She’s written for Women’s Day and Southern Living and appeared weekly on a gardening segment on television station WDEF-TV in Chattanooga, Tenn.

A past president of the Garden Writers Association, Lowe has been the recipient of numerous awards including five Quill and Trowel Awards from the Garden Writers Association and the Exemplary Journalism for Home Gardening Award from the National Garden Bureau.

A spectacular pink daylily was named for her, simply called the “Judy Lowe.”

She’s the author of many books on Southern gardening, including,

  • “Tennessee & Kentucky Month-By-Month Gardening” (2014).

  • “Pruning: An Illustrated Guide: Foolproof Methods for Shaping and Trimming Trees, Shrubs, Vines and More” (2014).

  • “Tennessee and Kentucky Garden Guide: The Best Plants for a Tennessee or Kentucky Garden” (2012).

  • “Herbs! Creative Herb Garden Themes and Projects” (2011).

The program, sponsored by the Friends of WKU Libraries, is free and open to the public. Lowe will speak a 7 p.m. at Barnes & Noble, 1680 Campbell Lane. Following her presentation, there will be a book signing.
