Preparing the Garden for Winter with John Fromer – October 8
October 8th: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Merryspring volunteer and Maine Master Gardener John Fromer speaks about how to prepare the garden for winter as the final part of his series Tending the Perennial Garden.
Part of the Summer Talk series, co-sponsored by The First National Bank and RE/MAX Jaret & Cohn Real Estate
Fromer’s presentation is all about when and how to put the garden to bed. He will discuss how and when to mulch, cutting back, how late to divide plants, reviewing the garden for next year, and planting spring bulbs.
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.
