Western North Carolina has experienced sustained periods of less than normal rainfall. Such conditions challenge gardeners as many plants perform at less than desired levels. Developing garden plans that consider the inevitability of drought will make gardening more enjoyable and sustainable. This presentation shares a variety of tips to help you create a water-wise garden.
The talk is free but registration is requested by calling 828-255-5522.
You are invited to bring a brown bag lunch.
