Part of the Summer Talk series, co-sponsored by The First National Bank and RE/MAX Jaret & Cohn Real Estate
Maintaining your perennial garden can be fun and relaxing- and the right methods can save time, money, and back pain. In this installment of his perennial gardening series, John Fromer will teach methods and tips to keep the late summer garden healthy and attractive. Weeding, deadheading, mulching, watering, staking, and pest and disease prevention will be demonstrated in the beautiful gardens at Merryspring.
A selection of recommended gardening books and tools will be available for purchase after the program. This is an outdoor program. Guests should wear weather-appropriate clothing.
Fromer has been a Maine Master Gardener since 1998 and runs Appleton Ridge Flower and Vegetable Farm with his wife Kathy, also a Maine Master Gardener. Together they grow flowers, vegetables, and herbs in a sustainable and authentic fashion.
