February 15th, 2019 – Gardening Double Header with Kerry Ann Mendez

Kerry Mendez joins us on Friday, February 15, 2019
9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Two lectures:
Success with Hydrangeas in Colder Climates. Unravel the mystery for having honkin’ Hydrangeas that will be the envy of the neighborhood. This vast genus of shrubs is divided into five commonly sold species. Knowing the differences and how to maximize the show from each (including pruning tips) will be discussed, as well as top-performing cultivars. Special attention will be given to tips and tricks for growing gorgeous blue and pink mophead Hydrangeas.
Kerry’s 2019 Picks for BEST Perennials, Flowering Shrubs, and Annuals. The aging process, along with dramatic climate changes and the vital importance for pollinator plants, has refined my list of must-have perennials, flowering shrubs, and annuals. The remarkable plants featured in this presentation require less input (maintenance as well as water, fertilizer and organic pesticides) plus they provide beauty and year-round food sources for birds, bees and butterflies. Enhanced property value is a bonus.
