FPF Class: Gardening With Sun-Loving Native Plants

  • Dennis & Judith Jones Visitor and Education Center 5595 Grand Drive St. Louis, MO, 63112 United States (map)

Gardening in our Midwest summers with full sun, dry/poor soil conditions and high humidity can be challenging. It can require much in the way of soil amendments, water and fertilizers. But does it have to? The good news is there are a multitude of native Missouri plants that thrive in these conditions without water, fertilizers and amendments and at the same time, attract abundant varieties of wildlife, inviting nature into our own landscapes. In this class, we will discuss how to effectively garden with native plants who love the sun and drought conditions, how it can be made easier and more aesthetically pleasing all year long and how to create a habitat that wildlife won’t be able to pass up. (This class may take place outside if the weather cooperates, so please dress accordingly.)

Classes are $10 or FREE for members! Advance registration is required. Sign up today!
