Native Plants 101 - A Kent County Delaware Master Gardener workshop series

Are you interested in learning more about native plants for Delaware and the mid-Atlantic region? This series of workshops will begin with an overview of how native plants and healthy soil are the foundation of our ecosystem. You will then learn how native ornamental grasses can add year-round interest to the landscape. Next, learn how to select “right-size” native trees, shrubs, and flowers for the average suburban lot. You will also discover how early spring flowering plants, common in the wild, can be brought into your garden. The final session will introduce you to some native plants that produce fruits and nuts that both support our native wildlife and are a food source for humans.Sign up for as many of these FREE workshops as you like and choose between in-person or live ZOOM for each!
