Lunch and Lecture

August 21 LUNCH & LECTURE: Easy Gardens for the South

Gardeners face unique challenges throughout the south. Harvey Cotton’s book, Easy Gardens for the South, is designed to help home gardeners choose the best plants to create a beautiful and sustainable landscape without having a horticultural degree. Through this lecture you will learn which annuals, perennials, bulbs, shrubs, vines and trees are best suited to thrive in our southern climate of hot, humid summers, periods of extreme drought followed by heavy rain…with a late freeze or two thrown in for good measure. Join us as Mr. Cotton describes the plants that are the easiest to grow, provide the most color and have low water requirements. Putting the Right Plant in the Right Place is the first step in creating a successful, sustainable garden and this presentation will help show you the way to creating a beautiful landscape.  Click here to purchase tickets.
