Presenter: Debbie Breck, Extension Master GardenerSM Volunteer
Just when you thought the gardening season couldn’t last forever, consider the “everlastings”—flowers and seed pods that hold their shape and color when preserved. Everlastings offer beauty in a wide variety of colors and textures that last long beyond the growing season. These “3-for-1” plants are easy and rewarding to grow. You can enjoy them blooming in your summer garden, cutting them for bouquets, and preserving them for decorations and crafts. Come and learn how to plant, grow, and preserve an “everlasting” garden. We’ll also cover using your preserved flowers in arrangements.
The talk is free but registration is requested by calling 828-255-5522.
