Learn the most important summer activities to care for you waterwise or California native garden and keep it looking its best!
Join us in the Waterwise Community Center’s beautiful public garden for a discussion and demonstration of the most important summer seasonal activities to care for your waterwise or California native garden. Keeping your garden healthy and looking great is not complicated, but relies on knowing what to do and when!
We will cover:
⁃ Summer season pruning and shaping of plants (for the ones that are tended to in summer)
⁃ Seasonal mulch and compost application: what to do and what to avoid
⁃ Common summer season weeds and tips and tricks for dealing with them
⁃ Watering / Irrigation for waterwise and native plants: how much and how often
⁃ Special tips for “establishment” care in the first year of a newly planted plant or garden.
⁃ Plenty of time to answer your summer garden care questions!
This workshop will be held partially outdoors. Please dress appropriately and bring water, a hat, sunblock, etc. as appropriate.
