Thursday, February 21, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm – Simplifying Gardens to Fit Our Lifestyles


Change happens. Many still dream of ‘Better Homes and Gardens’ landscapes but reality has muddied the picture. Job demands, kids, money, hectic schedules, aging bodies,and changing interests have led to nightmare gardens. Time for some ‘editing’. This inspiring lecture provides easy-to-follow downsizing strategies, recommended no-fuss plant material, and design tips for stunning year-round gardens that will be as close to ‘autopilot’ as you can get. Kerry Mendez, owner of Perennially Yours in Ballston Spa, New York will lead the discussion on Thursday, February 21, from 7 – 8:30 at Elm Bank in Wellesley. Book sales and signing follow the program.  $20 for Mass Hort members, $25 for non members.
