A native meadow is an ecologically vibrant landscape, providing food and habitat to native pollinators and other wildlife. The deep, undisturbed roots of mature meadow plants capture and store carbon. Meadows rarely need visits from lawnmowers or leaf-blowers, thus reducing air pollution and neighborhood noise.
But meadows are not simply lawns or perennial beds gone wild. At this talk, we'll discuss the definition of a meadow, site selection and preparation, the relationship of grasses and flowering species, and useful planting ideas. Helpful handout is included.
This is a great course for anyone from home gardeners to professional landscapers looking to take a deep dive into the in’s and out’s of meadow-making.
The Easton, CT, Garden Club will sponsor this one-hour talk.
If in person, it will take place at the Easton Library.
If a Webinar, it will be held on Zoom.
