Dwarf Conifer Solutions for Your Landscape
Tuesday, November 12, 2-3pm
Adding dwarf conifers to the landscape can bring a plethora of pleasures. These low maintenance plants range in mature size from tiny to twenty feet and add year-round diverse color and form to a sometimes dreary winter scene. They give beds and borders a contrasting background; create privacy; define spaces; and when used in groups, become an island of interest. John Lyons of Newbury has been growing a variety of hardy conifers and dwarf conifers for over thirty years. His slides and landscape tips will inspire the horticulturist in you. Meets at The Fells Gatehouse Classroom. Members free, nonmembers $8. To reserve, call 603-763-4789 ext. 3.
