Grow Native Wildflowers in Your Garden, Extension Gardening Seminar
Thursday, Feb 18, 2016 6:30pm – 8:00pm
Sarah P. Duke Gardens, 420 Anderson Street, Durham, NC

Presented by Kathleen Guerra & Nan Len, Durham County Extension Master Gardener volunteers. Why have a generic landscape when you can have a North Carolina one? Consider having native wildflowers. On a practical level, many of them are adapted to our local soil & climate. Aesthetically, they are lovely & are part of this region. Beneficially, they provide food & shelter for our native insects & birds. Kathleen & Nan will share a palette of native wildflowers that will provide all these advantages in your garden.
