Tuesday, February 1, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm – Native Groundcovers

Groundcovers act as living mulches, preventing erosion and soil compaction, while conserving moisture and moderating soil temperatures. Beyond strictly practical considerations are the aesthetic delights of groundcovers—they bring refreshing seasonal changes and a pleasing rhythmic interplay of form, texture, and color to the ground plane. This New England Wild Flower Society workshop, led by Laura Eisener on Tuesday, February 1 from 7 – 9 at Garden in the Woods in Framingham, is appropriate for garden designers, landscapers and homeowners, and focuses on the attributes and availability of native plants for groundcover use.$22 for NEWFS members, $26 for non-members.
