September 2 - Gardening for an Unpredictable Climate: Plants that Tolerate Extremes:
As our weather becomes more unpredictable, there are some plants that are especially tolerant of extreme drought and wet spells - and others that are a bit too sensitive. Come and learn about plants that are workhorses in our variable climate.
