Online: How to Make Your Life Easier with Native Plants

March 3, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EST

Gardening can be difficult at times, whether you’re trying to landscape an area under a dense pine canopy or grow the perfect tomato in a dry summer there are endless challenges to overcome. What if it were easier? What if there were plants that thrived under the pine trees, or on the sandy roadsides or could even take the place of all that wasted space we call lawn? What if you could grow beautiful, ecologically beneficial plants that evolved to deal with any problems that the New England landscape throws your way? Join Dan Jaffe Wilder to learn How to Make Your Life Easier with Native Plants
