2:30 p.m. – “Fall Planting and Prep for a Beautiful Spring Garden”
Fall is a great time to plant and prepare your garden for the winter and spring ahead. There’s still time to add new plants to the landscape. I'll share ideas for adding bulbs, trees and shrubs that all do well when planted in the fall.  Then learn how to take care of your new and established plants with proper watering, winterization and protection from wildlife to get through our often challenging winters and ready for an eye-catching spring display!
