Program: The Joy of Conifers
Speaker: Joan McAndrews, Fuquay-Varina Garden Club
Conifers are a diverse group of plants, much more complex and interesting than the Christmas trees that immediately spring to mind. Conifers can add an exciting dimension in your garden – bringing color and wonderful shapes to specimen plants. Joan will cover the many shapes of conifers and use sizing charts to evaluate the smaller varieties most suited to a garden.
Special Note: Member Plant Sale - bring plants potted, labeled, and priced to sell at our Members-Only Plant Sale. Your donations help fund RGC's activities. More details in the Leaflet.
