“As we head into fall, it is important to learn how to prepare your lawn and garden for the coming winter months as well as prepare for spring as early as possible,” says Stuart Leventhal, owner of Down To Earth Living. “Our experts will be on hand to answer any questions you might have, so it is a good opportunity to learn more about keeping your outdoor spaces beautiful in any season.” Participants can choose to attend any or all four of the seminars.
11 am: Lawn Care
Just because you won’t be mowing the lawn in winter, there is plenty you can do to ensure maximum enjoyment come spring. Learn about when to fertilize, how to optimize the use of herbicides and insecticides, what types of seeds are best for your growing conditions and when to plant, along with how to enhance your existing plantings.
12 pm: Winterize your Garden and Plan for Spring
It is important to prepare your gardens for their long winter naps so they will look their best next year. Learn how to protect your perennials, fall planting guidelines and plan out what to plant now for early spring color.
1 pm: Landscaping Design
Keep your garden colorful all year long by planting perennials that have a variety of bloom times. Learn how to plan out your own lawn and garden with tips and advice on enhancing your property—from sweeping lawns to craggy rock outcroppings and everything in between.
2 pm: Bonsai Gardening
Bonsai is the art of growing certain trees and shrubs in small, shallow containers. With careful and precise training and pruning, the plant is slowly shaped and manipulated to give the appearance of an older, mature tree. You too can learn about this ancient art, what plants are best to grow and how to care for them.
COVID Note: All chairs will be socially distanced and masks are encouraged.
