Garden Talks at Fairlawn
Thursday, February 22nd, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
From Vision to Reality: Planning Your Garden. Presented by Gary Banker and Tom Borich. Winter is the perfect time to create a plan for the garden you want to build in the spring. Snow cover allows you to choose your best location, select the plant material that you might want to incorporate, and determine the overall design. This garden talk will help you work through those beginning phases so you can be ready to implement your ideas. Both speakers have had a life-long love of gardening. Their interest has led them to start a business, The Blooms’ Brothers – which offers design ideas for containers and gardens. They will bring their love of plants as well as their experience to the talk. Cost is $10. Seating is limited, and sessions often sell out. Call 715-394-5712 to make your reservation.
