LONDONDERRY, Vt. – Are you dissatisfied with your garden but unsure how to “fix” it? Rather than starting from scratch, consider a garden renovation.
“Sorting your garden is not unlike sorting through your wardrobe,” says Cheryl Wilfong, a UVM Master Gardener. “Among your pile of clothes are some hidden gems that you want to keep. Using existing plants, you can re-assemble your garden into a more pleasing arrangement.”
On Wednesday, September 21 at 1 p.m., Wilfong will discuss garden renovation, using the gardens at The Sabbath House as an example. Located at 1010 Route 100 in Weston, The Sabbath House is Neighborhood Connections’ transitional housing complex. This location was recently designated a UVM Master Gardener community project. The presentation will take place there.
On the following Wednesday, September 28 at 1 p.m., Part 2 will consist of implementing the garden renovation. Volunteers are needed to assist in moving plants.
These programs, sponsored by the Windham County Extension Master Gardeners are offered at no charge, but reservations are necessary, so call 824-4343 to register.
