How to Grow an All-Season Landscape

— Written By and last updated by

Is the vegetable garden looking pretty weedy these days? And do the marigolds and petunias appear to be a little tired? When September rolls around all gardeners know that the growing season is coming to an end, in at least some ways. But don’t despair! There are lots of things that the gardener can do to keep their gardens and landscapes looking good year round! Maybe not in the conventional sense but there are things we can do to keep the appeal alive.

If you are interested in learning about some ways to have an interesting and eye-catching landscape during any season, September eleven’s workshop, How to Grow an All-Season Landscape will be of interest to you.

This program will make you aware of using textures and other elements such as winter blooming plants, interesting barks and twig color to keep your garden growing. The possibilities are endless when you change your perception of what a landscape can be. This is where we “weed” the amateurs out of the real gardeners.

This workshop will be held on Thursday, September 11th at 6:00 p.m. at the Extension office located at 130 Ammons Dr. in Morganton. Call our office at 439-4460 to register or to get more information for this upcoming event. Here’s your opportunity to have a landscape with pizzazz no matter what the season!
