Women in Horticulture: Adding Fall & Winter Interest to Your Garden6:00-6:45pm • FREE

Gardening should extend beyond just spring and summer blooms. Late season flowers, foliage, and fruit can be showstoppers in the garden, while also providing important food sources for pollinators and birds. Garden lovers are always looking for plants that will extend the season of interest, and bees are also looking to store up pollen and nectar to survive winter hibernation. Lucy will provide ideas for perennials, shrubs, and trees that flower, turn brilliant colors, and bear fruit late into the year. She will review the necessary site conditions for them to thrive, and show you how to create beautiful plant combinations.  Lucy will focus on plants that are not only good landscape plants but also provide pollen and food for wildlife

Lucy Dinsmore is the Azalea Meadow Horticulturist at the Morris Arboretum of the Univeristy of Pennsylvania. She’s worked for landscaping firms, garden centers, and holds a master’s degree from the University of Minnesota. As the Assistant Director of the group Women in Horticulture, which provides women with opportunities in professional development, networking, and mentorship during free and low-cost events in the greater Philadelphia area.
