Native Plants for Beginners
Do you need help getting started gardening with Native Plants? Then this presentation is for you. It takes place at 11:00 am on September 9 at the Native Plant Sale at Morven Park.
You may know that native plants are meant to be here, so they’re actually easier and more beneficial to grow here. We’ll have a brief introduction to the subject, followed by plant suggestions for a variety of growing conditions: sun/shade, wet/dry, etc. We’ll have plants on hand to take a look at, along with pictures of mature plants in native garden settings. And, as an added bonus, the first 10 people who attend the talk will be offered a free copy of Native Plants for Northern Virginia, a great introductory guide published by Plant NOVA Natives.
Then after the presentation, you can look around at what’s available at the Sale from four native plant nurseries. Armed with the information from the presentation, you can browse among the plants and ask questions of knowledgeable volunteers and nursery staff. They are they to help you build on your new-found knowledge and choose plants for your yard.
