June 2021 Monthly Meeting

Our June 21st Zoom meeting welcomed Dr. Juliana Razryadov for a very educational and informative program. Entitled Big Splash Small Space: Native Plants for Container Gardens, Juliana will gave us a review of container gardening that brings nature to our doorstep.  She reviewed native plants available that form beautiful compositions in limited spaces.  We learned about pots, overwintering, media composition, and species of native plants that suit them..  Juliana is presently the Botanical Collections Manager at the Botanic Gardens of Wellesley College and was previously the Curator of Horticulture at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.
