WinH Assistant Director, Lucy Dinsmore, will give a talk titled:
Adding Fall & Winter Interest to Your Garden
Gardening should extend beyond just spring and summer blooms. Late season flowers, foliage, and fruit can be showstoppers in the garden, while also providing important food sources for pollinators and birds. Garden lovers are always looking for plants that will extend the season of interest, and bees are also looking to store up pollen and nectar to survive winter hibernation. Lucy will provide ideas for perennials, shrubs, and trees that flower, turn brilliant colors, and bear fruit late into the year. She will review the necessary site conditions for them to thrive, and show you how to create beautiful plant combinations. Lucy will focus on plants that are not only good landscape plants but also provide pollen and food for wildlife. She'll also share some pro tips on how to get your garden ready for Fall and Winter. Find out what to plant and how to care for it. What to prune, deadhead, cut back and when.
