National Pollinator Week is the perfect occasion to discuss the small animals that perform such an important role in our home landscapes. Join Extension Master Gardener Elaine Mills to learn about the characteristics of pollinators and the plants native to the Mid-Atlantic region that will attract them and fill their needs, whether your garden space is large or limited to a patio or balcony. Best gardening practices for pollinators and special considerations for designing containers of native plants are also explained. Elaine is a co-coordinator at the Glencarlyn Library Community Garden and a creative force behind the resource Tried and True Native Plant Selections for the Mid-Atlantic on mgnv.org.
If you can’t join us for a live online presentation, video recordings of the sessions are posted to the Master Gardener Virtual Classroom.
