The New Plant Parent
Darryl Cheng, author of The New Plant Parent, will bring your houseplant care to the next level! With the soaring popularity of houseplants, more and more people are bringing these living things into their homes, but remain confused about exactly how to care for them. Searching the Internet for plant care advice tends to leave people with more questions than answers. Some of the advice they find has been recycled from decades past when houseplants were treated as mere decor. Darryl brings a fresh perspective to an old hobby. His science-based, practical approach has helped thousands understand the essentials of houseplant care to become confident plant parents.
Darryl’s new book, The New Plant Parent, is available for purchase in the Garden Shop and he will be signing copies after this lecture.
TBG’s first-ever Plant Swap – 5 to 7 p.m.
