Topic: Incorporating Native Plants & Shrubs Into a Diverse Garden Landscape
Meeting Type: In person
Join us in welcoming Dr. Sue Webb, a master gardener from Chilton County, who will speak on incorporating native plants and shrubs into a diverse garden landscape. A microbiologist by training, Sue has turned her analytical skills to learning about and nurturing native plants in the home garden. She is a consultant on landscape design with natives and holds a Native Plant Certification from the Birmingham Botanical Garden. She has also developed a native plant section for Petals from the Past nursery in Jemison, AL.
What's New in 2022?
We will look at some new and interesting varieties of plants that have recently emerged on the market. There are a lot of breeding programs and introductions being made every year so Megan will narrow down the field to some of the most exciting and some of the most versatile.
