Maintaining a Native Plant Garden:
Strategies for an Easier Season

One of the most frequent questions asked by people considering switching to a California native garden is, “How do I maintain it?”

Suzanne Carter will give you the knowledge you need.  In addition to tips and tricks, she will touch on various topics like discouraging weeds in the first place by planting smart and gardening without commercial herbicides.

Suzanne has been gardening in the Bay Area for 12 years. She has a certificate in Landscape Horticulture from Merritt College and has done numerous pruning and design workshops. As her company name Urban Gardens suggests, she’s geared toward smaller city and suburban gardens.

Join us at Native Here on Saturday, December 11 at 11:00 to learn more. Suzanne will answer questions after her talk. Masks and social distancing required.

The nursery will be open from 10-2 as usual.
