ACGC October class: Help! My plants are out of control!
A primer on native plant alternatives to exotic invasives
Click on headline for complete announcement
By Donna Jones, President
Adair County Garden Club
The Adair County Garden Club is excited to have Linda Porter presenting our October Class, many of you met Linda when she was here to present the class on Monarch Butterflies, so please join us October 22, 2015 at the Adair County Cooperative Extension Office, 409 Fairground Street, Columbia, Ky 42728 at 1pmCT. for this great presentation.
Do you have plants in your garden that are taking over and spreading into surrounding yards, woods or gardens? Some of these may just be aggressive native plants, but others could well be exotic invasive species - determined to make themselves right at home in their alien environment, and take over! This class will teach you how to identify an invasive species, provide a few tips for how to get rid of it when found, and offer alternative native plants and wildflowers that are low maintenance and add beauty, not damage, to your landscape.
An educator by profession, Linda Porter has been gardening with native plant species for over 15 years. She is currently serving as President's Project Chair on Native Pollinators for the Garden Club of Kentucky. She has planted prairie and woodland gardens for churches and other organizations in Illinois and Kentucky; and offered classes on gardening with natives in both states. Her work in school gardens and butterfly education has won garden club awards at the State, Regional and National level.
If you are not a member of the garden club please call Donna Jones at 270-634-2125 to register for this class.
