If you’ve ever wanted to add the beautiful chaos of a healthy flowering meadow to your landscape, this presentation will demystify the steps. Kathy Connolly will discuss the definition of a meadow, which may surprise you, meadow ecology, the role of native plant species, and steps you can take right now to start planting a new meadow or encourage an existing meadow to grow. She’ll discuss the challenges of integrating a meadow into more conventional landscape settings. She'll also discuss deer and other pests, sources of supply, helpful books, and websites.
