10. THE WEATHER – IT’S A NEW GAME OUT THERE: Help Your Perennial Garden Learn to Live Through It
Nature is all about change and gardening through whatever surprises are in store. Help ensure your trees, shrubs and perennials will thrive despite an ever changing climate. After several years of rain followed by a couple of droughts, annual lovers are beginning to question their expense and lack-lustre performance. Perennial gardeners are watching their once healthy plants, shrubs and trees suffer – some lost to disease and others dying without any “apparent” reason – and not understanding why or how. Better knowledge will help give all your perennials, soft and woody, the best odds to survive our unpredictable winters and springs and help save you time, money and frustration. Whether a seasoned veteran, just tired of browning cedars, planting petunias and marigolds, are fed up with trying to keep the grass green, or have just dug yourself a space to garden and don’t know what to do with all that dirt or what to plant in it.....this is the workshop for you!
