Tending the Perennial Garden IV

Posted Aug. 31, 2012, at 10:48 a.m.

Camden gardener and Merryspring volunteer Wendy Andresen will present the fourth installment of her on-going lecture series “Tending the Perennial Garden” at Merryspring Nature Center on Tuesday, September 4 at 12:00 noon.

Even though the days have begun to get shorter, there’s still plenty of gardening left to do. Now in its fourth month, Andresen’s series will offer useful tips and helpful tricks to encourage perennial gardens to thrive well into autumn.

As the seasons progress, this series adapts to accommodate changes in the weather and in the perennial garden. Andresen’s presentation will reference Tracy DiSabato-Aust’s essential gardening manual The Well Tended Perennial Garden, copies of which will be for available for purchase, as well as other garden tools and accessories.

Participants for this Talk should meet outside at Merryspring’s gazebo at noon. Guests are reminded to wear comfortable shoes and weather-appropriate clothing to this event.

Wendy currently serves as a volunteer at Merryspring, where she maintains the park’s perennial beds.

This presentation is part of the Summer Talk Series, cosponsored by Camden National Bank and Jaret & Cohn Real-Estate.

Admission to the Tuesday Talks is free to Merryspring members and children, with a nominal $5 fee for non-members.

Merryspring is a member-supported, non-profit nature education center and park located at the end of Conway Road just off Rt. 1 by the Hannaford shopping plaza in Camden. For more information, call Merryspring at 236-2239
