Solutions Gardening with Sarah Browning

Every landscape is a unique combination of sun, shade, soil type, available moisture, wind exposure and many other factors. Choosing the best plants, which will thrive given each site's unique challenges and opportunities, is the first consideration on the road to success. Common challenges found in landscapes include shade, wet soil, hot dry locations and wildlife activity. In this presentation, Sarah will discuss perennials and shrubs which can thrive under each of these conditions, helping to keep these landscape sites low maintenance yet filled with beautiful, healthy plants.
