This spring gardeners of the West can start the growing season equipped with knowledge and inspiration, making gardening less of a chore and more of a joy. Fourteen celebrated experts in Western horticulture will share their professional insights to gardening in the West. Western gardeners face unique challenges with dry air, intense sun, clay or sandy soil, and dramatic temperature fluctuations. The seven week TeleSeries begins the first day of spring, March 20 and can be accessed for free any time until May 1, 2012 from home by phone or online.
According to a recent Denver Post article the series, titled Secrets to Beautiful, Easy and Sustainable Gardening in the Interior West, “aims to teach beginners and other gardeners that they can create beauty if they make the effort to understand the land.” The article can be accessed at http://www.denverpost.com/athome/ci_19990682. “The West can be a gardener’s paradise when gardeners know how best to work with the conditions they have inherited,” claims Eva Montane, host of the series.
Panayoti Kelaidis of the Denver Botanic Gardens, Pat Hayward, Executive Director of Plant Select, Robert Nold, author of High and Dry; Gardening with Cold-Hardy Dryland Plants, and Mary Ann Newcomer, “Dirt Diva” at Gardens of the Wild Wild West are a few of the renowned speakers who will be featured.
