Event has passed

Gardener John Fromer will lead an outdoor presentation on “Opening the Perennial Garden,” Tuesday, May 25, at 12 p.m., at Merryspring Nature Center.

Spring is here, and it’s time to open the perennial garden. In this outdoor program, John Fromer will teach how to divide perennials, discuss strategies for weeding, and talk about how to care for young plants early in the growing season. The talk will be followed by a garden walk through the perennial borders at Merryspring.

This program is the first of Fromer’s perennial gardening talk series, which will continue throughout the season at Merryspring.

Fromer has been a Maine Master Gardener since 1998 and runs Appleton Ridge Flower and Vegetable Farm with his wife Kathy, also a Maine Master Gardener. Together they grow flowers, vegetables, and herbs in a sustainable and authentic fashion. He currently serves on the Merryspring board of trustees.

This talk is part of Merryspring’s Outdoor Spring Talk series. Outdoor Talks are held in a distanced manner in the Hexagon at Merryspring, with face-masks required for all guests.

The cost of this program is $5 for the general public, with a free admission for Merryspring members. No preregistration is necessary for this event.
