Creating a Pocket Meadow

Creating a Pocket Meadow
With Lisa Wagner
Sat. May 16 from 10 – 11 AM plus Q&A
“Pocket” meadows of largely native plants provide an attractive, low-maintenance, and wildlife-friendly alternative to traditional perennial plantings, great for small-scale plantings around mailboxes, along driveways, or next to the back door.
Unlike larger meadow plantings, small, informal, and simply managed meadows can be tucked into a variety of spaces in private and public landscapes, providing habitat and sustenance for pollinators and other insects, as well as being attractive landscape additions.
RSVP for Workshop HERE.
We have a few spots left. Once you RSVP, you will be emailed a workshop invitation on the morning of Sat. May 16, prior to the workshop.
|FROM WILMA: Today I had an occasion to drive through several residential neighborhoods. There were mature rhododendron plantings that were breath taking. Included in some of the landscapes were native flame azaleas as well as Exbury type azaleas in various shades of orange.|
For Mother’s Day my son, Dave, gave me a brilliant orange Gibraltar azalea. He offered to plant it for me but at the time I didn’t have a location picked out. I have chosen a spot next to the front steps where I will plant it.
Now is the time to prune and fertilize ( use Espoma Hollytone) rhododendron and azaleas. Once they have flowered, prune other spring-flowering shrubs like forsythia, lilac, weigelia, etc. as they will soon be setting bud for next year.

Planting a pollinator garden is easy. A few blooming plants and a water source will get you started. Every flower counts! First we’ll talk about the basics of pollinator gardening, why pollinator habitat is critical, and why native plants are so beneficial.
Next, we will take you through the steps to getting your pollinator garden certified with Bee City USA – Asheville. This local certification program offers 4 tiers of garden certification. You’ll only need six plants...More here.

Matt Timmer’s last day with us as our Green Goods Manager is this Friday. As Tanya said - this is very bittersweet. We wish him all the best on his next adventure, but we will miss his daily enthusiasm, his love of plants, and his ongoing desire to make the world a better place.
We love you Matt!
