Free garden program at FENCE, Nov. 12

Published 5:19pm Friday, November 2, 2012

Have you got large trees that absolutely nothing will grow under?

Then this free program is just the thing for you. FENCE will present “Under Plant Your Trees” at 10 a.m. on Nov. 12.

Find out how to under plant your trees without harming the tree. Learn which plants will grow dependably under your oaks, maples, crepe myrtle trees and more.   Rhonda Anderson, landscape designer and owner of Motlow Creek Gardens, will present the program, which will last approximately 20-30 minutes with a question and answer session.

This free gardening seminar is offered by FENCE with the support of the Kirby Endowment Fund at the Polk County Community Foundation.  For more information or directions to FENCE, visit or call 828-859-9021.
