Discussion covers ‘A to Z’ essentials of ground cover
The Foothills Association of Master Gardeners would like to invite you to a special gardening program “Ground Covers for the Foothills” on Monday, Nov. 5 at 1:30 p.m. at Isothermal Community College in Columbus.
It will be presented by Jeanine Gauen, who is a Master Gardener in both North Carolina and Illinois, as well as owner of The Garden Patch Nursery in Columbus.
Ground covers are used to provide protection from erosion, drought and to help prevent weeds from growing. They also improve the aesthetics of an area by covering bare dirt and can be quite beautiful. The discussion will cover the “A to Z” essentials of ground cover plants that perform well in our area as you learn which plants work best for your sunny, shady, wet or dry areas.
A brief business meeting for members of the Foothills Association of Master Gardeners will follow the program.
