Sand and Soil: Creating Beautiful Gardens on Cape Cod with C.L. Fornari
August 9, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$10.00
TO BE HELD AT THE FIRST CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH
68 MAIN STREET, FALMOUTH
While some aspects of Cape and Islands gardening have remained the same for decades, there are other facets of growing in this area that have changed. Warmer falls and newly introduced insects or diseases present challenges or prompt changes in some landscaping practices. Data from the latest research and adjustments in how we choose to support wildlife or protect our waterways mean altering old ways of maintaining yards and gardens. And many new plant varieties mean greater choices for our landscapes. Learn about what’s new and be inspired by photos of lovely plants and gardens.
BIO: C.L. Fornari is the author of eight books and numerous articles, including her latest, Sand and Soil; Creating Beautiful Gardens on Cape Cod and the Islands. She’s currently the host of GardenLine, on WXTK and co-host of the Plantrama podcast. CL speaks to horticultural trade shows, gardening groups and public gatherings. She writes and runs a consultation service for Country Garden, a garden center in Hyannis. Her not-so-secret mission is to put horticulture back into popular culture… in the meantime, she cultivates plants at Poison Ivy Acres on Cape Cod and blogs at www.GardenLady.com
Eight Cousins Books, our co-host, will have copies of this book at the talk.
The book will also be available in the store at 189 Main Street in Falmouth.
