Waking Up The Garden

Jim Newman

Jim Newman, a resident horticulturist at Clark, will get us started on the spring gardening season. He will show us some of the highlights of what Clark Botanic Garden has to offer, as he walks us around and demonstrates pruning techniques, division of plants, and general garden care. He will answer your many questions; e.g., plants for various growing conditions, when to prune plants and shrubs, etc. Those of you who have attended this program in the past know how much we learn in this short space of time. This year’s program also will include a tour of the greenhouse. The lecture is held outdoors, so please dress accordingly, and bring all of your gardening questions.
