Learn With Us, week of April 3

The Sun: Friend or Foe in the Piedmont Garden? 
Thursday, Apr 7, 2016 6:30pm – 8:00pm
Sarah P. Duke Gardens, 420 Anderson St, Durham, NC 27705

Presented by Kit Flynn, Durham County Extension Master Gardener volunteer.
It’s a quandary: 6 hours of sun that many showy, sun loving plants require may mean exposure to our killer Piedmont afternoon sun. And then the level of sunlight changes from season to season and year to year. This presentation will give you strategies to read your garden, helping you understand just where the sun is across the arc of the day and over the course of a year. With this information you can situate your sun loving plants in the most advantageous position possible and enjoy the show!
