Seminar...Starting Your Spring Garden

With the temperatures outside today, we could almost be fooled into thinking Old Man Winter is back for awhile, but the forsythia and daffodils are a sure sign that Spring is here to stay, not to mention the blue bird I saw the other day while out for a drive.  Just in time for your spring gardening, Sullivan Renaissance is offering another great seminar to help you get ready.

Avoiding Invasive Plants and Other Common Pitfalls

[FERNDALE] – Want to start your spring gardening with better plants and a smarter design?  Want to know why gardeners choose a mix of annuals and perennials?  Want to know how to avoid invasive plants and other common pitfalls?
Sullivan Renaissance is holding its “Spring Gardening” seminar on Wednesday, April 4 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Center in Ferndale. 
Vivian Multari-Ginsberg, Horticultural Liaison for Sullivan Renaissance, will give a general overview on spring gardening, covering topics such as garden design, annual and perennial plants, avoiding invasive plants, dealing with pests and other gardening tips.  Included in the discussion will be information about the Renaissance Collection, a group of annuals and perennials that meet the challenges of gardening in Sullivan County.
Bring your enthusiasm and questions!  There will be time to answer specific questions.
