The Greenery, Inc. – Monday, June 09, 2014

Maybe you saw this bizarre, but true, story on the news. Residents of Albuquerque are dealing with swarms of grasshoppers that are so large they actually show up on weather radar, according to ABC News. Fortunately, we don’t have pests or disease of that magnitude here in the Lowcountry, but there are still plenty of problems that can plague your garden or landscaping.  Our free customer seminars at The Greenery this month will help you prevent damage to your landscape, and will teach you how to design and plant appropriately to have a beautiful garden and landscape that will thrive against the challenges of nature!

On Wednesday, June 11th, and again on Saturday, June 14th, learn about controlling pests and diseases from Horticulture Professor Bill Leonard. Bill is a member of Lowcountry Master Gardener Association and works with the University of Clemson Extension Office. These FREE seminars are a priceless opportunity for novices and experts alike to get one-on-one advice from a leading expert in the field.

More expert advice is yours free on Wednesday, June 18th  when Gary Moews answers your questions about gardening, plants, and garden design. Gary’s “Ask the Expert” seminars are extremely popular. Mark your calendars now and bring your toughest questions to see if you can stump Gary!

Lastly, Wendy Porterfield, The Greenery’s landscape and floral designer will help you craft breathtaking heat-tolerant container gardens that will make you the envy of all your friends and neighbors. Go beyond “thriller, filler, and spiller” design to learn secrets of show-stopping containers that thrive in the hot weather to come!

Come to ALL the free seminars this month at The Greenery, every Wednesday and Saturday mornings at 10:30 AM. You’ll get plenty of expert advice for free.  Attendees also get a shopping discount. And speaking of discounts, our annual Summer Clearance is June 21st and 22nd. Save from 10% to 50% throughout the garden center and the Antiques and Collectibles shop.
