Manitowoc County Master Gardeners present their third annual Manitowoc Garden Talk with 2 lectures by
Kerry Ann Mendez, renowned lecturer and garden author.

1. Gardening Simplified: Plants and Design Solutions for Time-Pressed and Maturing Gardeners. Change happens. Job demands, kids, hectic schedules, aging bodies, and changing interests have led to gardens that are not in balance with our lifestyle. Time for some ‘editing’. This inspiring lecture provides easy-to-follow right-sizing strategies, recommended no-fuss plant material, and design tips for stunning year-round gardens that will be as close to ‘autopilot’ as you can get. The lecture is based on my book The Right-Size Flower Garden.

2. The Budget-Wise Gardener: Plant the Best for Less! Money-Saving Tips for Purchasing Plants Plus Cost-Saving Garden Designs. Discover a wealth of ideas for getting the best price and value for exceptional plants. The plant sources and strategies will surprise you! Also covered are striking design concepts for eye-popping, pollinator-friendly landscapes requiring less maintenance and water. And container gardening takes on a whole new spin with these cost-effective, creative ideas! This lecture is based on my newest book, The Budget-Wise Gardener: With Hundreds of Money-Saving Buying & Design Tips for Planting the Best for Less
