THE USUAL PLANTS, UNUSUALLY USED

WITH JANET MACUNOVICH

Many gardeners expend a lot of time and effort to find and grow unusual things. Here's a way to spare your wallet and your green thumb by growing more common, easier things without giving up your position on the cutting-edge. Just grow your commoners in unconventional ways.

Professional gardener and writer Janet Macunovich shares 40 years' experience in this approach, including her favorite plants and ingenious, unusual ways to employ them... all brought to you at the perfect time to use the ideas in your yard this year.

There is no cost to attend.

FAIRY GARDENS COME TO LIFE

WITH PATTY WATKINS

Join us for a morning of connecting fantasy to our everyday lives in this fairy gardening presentation by Patty Watkins. The seminar will be based on the inspiring writings of the Flower Fairy books and "true to nature" paintings by Cicely Mary Barker. With inspiration from Cicely Mary Barker, Patty will give you tips on creating your own fairy gardens such as plants to use, garden care, and design.
