CAMDEN — Gardener John Fromer will lead a program about combining perennials in the garden, Tuesday, August 4, at 12 p.m., at Merryspring Nature Center.
The use of interesting plant combinations can turn any garden into a colorful and varied display. Fromer's talk will cover the use of color, texture, repetition, foliage, and plant groupings. He will emphasize the importance of bloom-times, planting dates, and taking advantage of non-blooming perennials to keep gardens colorful and changing all season.
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.
This event is part of the Summer Talk series, sponsored by First National Bank.
