Event has passed

CAMDEN — Maine Master Gardener John Fromer will lead a presentation titled “New Ideas in Perennial Design” on Tuesday, July 6, at 12 p.m., at Merryspring Nature Center. 

Part of his ongoing perennial gardening series at Merryspring, John Fromer will present this exciting talk on new and innovative methods to design and redesign the backyard perennial garden. Fromer will speak about traditional and new garden design methods, including some twists that will help to visualize the garden, make key decisions, and de-stress and shorten the design and planning processes.

John 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 Summer Talk series, sponsored by The First National Bank.
