The all day event started with a Garden Market where attendees walked through the mazes of the Madoo Conservancy and browsed from a variety of vendors and items.

For those looking to spruce up their garden before the start of summer Peony's Envy sold a variety of garden items from gardening tools to plants and if you were interested in trying out your green thumb Peconic Herb Farm was the booth to stop at.

Fitting with the Genius of England theme guest could purchase a pair of the British brand Hunter Boots to ensure you look stay clean and look stylish while gardening. For those looking to turn their garden into a relaxing oasis cabanas from Home Nature were a must have.

If you wanted some inspiration for party table decorations for your summer parties, flower arranging classes were available with Lilee Fell and Natasha Hopkinson.

Barbara Paul Robinson lectured on her new book Rosemary Verey: The Life and Lessons of a Legenday Gardener.

Many of the vendors stayed during the Garden Cocktail party where guests dined on English inspired hors d'ouevres. If you weren't shopped out you could bid on items from CW Arborists, Jeffrey Sellers and Charlotte Moss during the silent auction or the live auction which was presented by Jamie Niven.

The Madoo Conservancy was establsihed by artist and writer Robert Dash who has established a green, organic encyclopedia of gardening on two acres of land in Sagaponack, featuring Tudor, High Renaissance, early Greek, as well as Oriental garden influences.
