Register Now

The excitement of moving to the property that will become a dream garden, putting that first shovel in the ground, and discovering that you have just moved on to a 2-acre sand pile. Exploring the trials and tribulations, successes and failures of creating a great garden on dry sand. From the un-watered Xeric garden to the increasing amounts of dry shade, a vast array of perennials, shrubs, and annuals have been successfully cultivated under these tough conditions. In a talk that is part biographical, part technical, and part inspirational, Jeff will share techniques for site preparation, plant selection, as well as “right plant, right place” planting schemes.

Wednesday, November 15; 7 to 8:30 p.m., doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Public $20, TBG Members FREE, Member Guest $5
