‘Native Friendly Trees, Shrubs & Perennials’ Presentation at Sophia’s Portico

This month Judith will be giving a presentation at Fort Wayne’s Sophia’s Portico on the use of native plants in gardens. This program will briefly touch on the origin of ideas about gardens which come mainly from Europe. You will learn how to help our environment with native plants and will be enticed to plant these wonderfully effective, functional members of our region. Come discover the interactions between plants and insects which hold keys to supporting our pollinators. Fall is a great time to learn how to be apart of this environmentally friendly growing trend.

The presentation costs $15 to attend and will be held on October 17 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.

Fort Wayne Home & Garden Show Presentation

This Friday Judith will be giving a presentation at the Fort Wayne Home & Garden Show on Container Gardens with Native Plants. She is encouraging everyone to plant native, mostly perennial plants in containers regardless of where they may live. This helps to provide food and habitats for our native pollinators, which are declining. It saves money when you plant once and don’t have to plant annuals. Native plants are very hardy and usually do well with little care except for watering at first to establish a strong root system.

Visit the show and check out this increasingly informative presentation on working with the plants that naturally grow in the area that we live in.

Here’s what Judith said about Jane’s project; “It was a wonderful project, creating a beautiful and and sustainable garden for Jane. She encouraged me to install as many native perennials as possible to fit her space, design, and budget. Jane’s quote explains her reason for going native is “I just believe it should be natural. They’re hardy, they’re natural, and I really like the way it turned out.”

About the Prairie Preservation Project Judith says “It was a pleasure working with Eddie and Nan Coble on designing a native plant display perennial garden. We walked and measured the

property and talked about ways to discourage small animals from eating the new plants. We planned on successive flowering during the season with small grasses adding height and drama. We also included nectar plants to help the bees find food and produce honey.”
