Perennial Garden Design with John Fromer – July 21

July 21st, 2020: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Gardener John Fromer will lead a program about perennial garden design at Merryspring Nature Center on Tuesday, July 21 at 12:00 pm.

In this class, John will teach gardeners different design methods for a variety of gardens. He will speak about the importance of knowing the garden environment and soil conditions, and how to consider garden progress from either scratch or a redesign. Fromer will also describe selecting and sorting the right plants for season-long blooms and anticipating growth.

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.
