The Evening GC of West Roxbury, "Seasonal Care for Gorgeous Well-Behaved Gardens", presented by Kerry Mendez
"Seasonal Care for Gorgeous, Well-Behaved Gardens" with Kerry Mendez, author and self-proclaimed "passionate perennialist." If "seasonal garden care" sounds boring, you're in for a surprise. If — like most of us — you've been spending too much time caring for your garden beds, this talk is for you. You'll learn "what to do when" and tips that span the seasons, including ways to reduce the time you devote to pruning, deadheading, fertilizing, mulching, cutting back in fall and more. Colorful slides and handouts will reinforce Kerry's simple how-to's. Kerry packs the hall at every speaking engagement - don't miss this event.
