Sand and Soil: Creating Beautiful Gardens on Cape Cod with C.L. Fornari
August 9 @ 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.
