Decorative and Producing Vines—Going Vertical

You have more space than you know in your garden—grow up, vertically that is, with vines. The number of attractive and productive vines that grow well in our gardens will amaze you. There are many vines available that are not too aggressive or invasive. Annual and perennial vine varieties will be discussed along with the cultural and pruning requirements.

We have fall garden programs taking place at all our Forsyth County Public Library branches. Here is a complete list of programs for our fall series.

All programs are free and open to the public but we ask that you pre-register before attending. To pre-register please call 336 703-2850, or e-mail Kitrinka Gordon.
