 GARDENS WITH NO FLOWERS

May 20 @ 10:00 am11:30 am

Freedom Park Interpretive Center, 10:00 a.m., open to the public.

Susan Voigt, a JCCW and New Kent Master Gardener and the facilitator of the native plant (NWF certified) Schoolyard Habitat Garden at Stonehouse Elementary in Toano, will suggest some plants that deer won’t eat — ferns for a shade garden and mosses on pathways and in little gardens. In sunny areas, ornamental grasses add interesting shapes and colors to traditional perennial beds, and the shorter sedges can be placed in front of taller blooming plants. These plants grow wild in much of Virginia, don’t need much care, and are not interesting to deer and rabbits. Most nurseries and garden centers offer many varieties of these alternative plants that add much interest to home landscapes. This event is part of the Learn and Grow Educational Series sponsored by the Williamsburg Botanical Garden. The program is free, although a $5.00 donation to help the Garden grow is appreciated. For more information, contact Susan by email at svoigt1@cox.net
After the program, Master Gardeners will be in the Garden to answer questions and talk about what is in bloom.


Our mission is to enhance the life of residents and visitors by promoting beautiful gardens for the enjoyment of plants and the environment through year-round educational and recreational programs.


Although Williamsburg Botanical Garden is a Public Garden, Wedding Ceremonies of any size and Portrait Photography of any kind requires scheduling and a permit with fees paid thirty days prior to the event.
