Put your garden to bed

Member Lecture October 21st, 2 – 3 pm

October 21, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Discover How to Put Your Garden to Bed is our lecture on Sunday, October 21 from 2 – 3 pm.

Big or small, all gardens need tending in the Fall.  We are happy to have Ellen Kuner as our lecturer.  Ellen is a Master Gardener, long-time member friend of FOPCON and was president for four years.  She has been a volunteer for 27 years at the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust where in addition to giving tours, Ellen heads up WeedWrights – they pull up Mr. Wright’s weeds.   Ellen’s lecture will educate you on a whole bunch of ‘Whats’ for the end of the gardening season:

·       What to pull up
·       What to cut down
·       What to leave alone
·       What to prune
·       What to cover up
·       What to do with all those leaves

Light refreshments will be served.
