8:00 p.m. Kim Roth on Right Plant, Right Place
Kim returns with a new presentation, Right Plant, Right Place. This program will include discussion of plantings around black walnut trees, in particularly wet or dry areas, for bees and butterflies, that deer might not eat, and for other situations, all building on Kim's incredible knowledge of perennials and botany.
