Henry Homeyer: The Gardening Guy - Sat., May 19, 10:30am

  • The Fells Historic Estate & Gardens 456 Route 103A Newbury, NH, 03255 United States (map)

Join garden writer Henry Homeyer for a workshop titled, "Learning About Invasive Plants." This will include some you have in your garden - and may like. We will start indoors with a presentation of common invasives and nice, non-invasive plants that can be used instead. Learn what techniques an organic gardener can use to get rid of invasives. The workshop will conclude with a walk around the Fells, looking for invasives and substitutes. Members: $15, non-members: $20. Advanced registration required. To reserve call 603-763-4789 x3.
