Wednesday Evening Lecture Series:  Honing In on the Best Plants for Your Garden

presented by Darcy Daniels

When beginning to select plants for your garden, it often seems at first that the universe of plants is vast and huge: so many plants, so many options! Once you get started, though, you soon find that each garden situation is pretty specific, and only some plants in the universe are going to be happy with the light, water, and space you have for them. To hone in on the best plants for your garden, it may help to think of the process as something like a Venn diagram with three circles: one representing all the plants in the universe; one that represents the plants that fit your garden situation; and one that represents the plants you love and want to grow — where the circles overlap will be plants that not only thrive in your garden, but will make you happy every day!

Reception begins at 6:30 pm, lecture immediately following annual meeting.
