Women in Horticulture
Adding Fall & Winter Interest to Your Garden

6:00-6:45pm • FREE
Gardening can extend beyond 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 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 and focus on plants that also provide pollen and food for wildlife. We’ll discuss best site conditions and how to create beautiful plant combinations.

Lucy Dinsmore is the Azalea Meadow Horticulturist at the Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania. She’s 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.
