Learn how to maintain: Rain Gardens, Pollinator Gardens, Wildflower Meadows and Residential Native Plant Gardens

About this Event

Native Plants are popular for use in rain gardens, pollinator gardens and in home landscapes because of their adaptability to our soils, resistance to insect and disease problems and natural beauty! Yet, like all gardens, native plant gardens need some tender love and care (TLC) too! This workshop will discuss routine maintenance of your garden such as watering and mulching. We’ll talk about pruning trees and shrubs in your garden. To keep your garden from getting too overgrown, how and when to cut back perennial herbaceous plants will be described. Native plants are fun to share, so we will discuss methods of propagating your plants to keep them healthy and provide plant material for other gardens! The Saturday workshop will include hands-on demonstrations in a rain garden, so please dress for the weather and wear appropriate footwear for working outdoors.

Led by Madeline Flahive DiNardo, County Agent / Associate Professor, Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Union County
