Native Plant Gardening in Small Gardens and Containers
Dr. Lisa Wagner
Plant ecologist and garden educator
Thursday, April 15, at 7 pm
This is a Zoom presentation.
Many of our native species are well-suited to small spaces, al lowing you to create naturalistic garden vignettes in decorative containers, by entrances or around mailboxes. Slow-growing shrubs and compact perennials are easiest to use in “pocket” gardens, but larger-growing natives are also suitable when used in annual or short-term plantings. Combining plants in small spaces doesn’t have to be complicated but benefits from using nature’s inspiration to create pleasing naturalistic de signs. Join Lisa to learn about her favorite natives and design strategies for small gardens and containers.
