Maintaining a Native Plant Garden: Strategies for an Easier Season


One of the most frequent questions asked by people considering converting their gardens to California natives is, “How do I maintain it?”

Come to a talk by Suzanne Carter at Native Here Nursery on December 11 at 11 am to learn how to do it yourself or how to hire a knowledgeable person to do it for you. In addition to tips and tricks, Suzanne will touch on various topics like discouraging weeds in the first place by planting smart, gardening without commercial herbicides, and considering the needs of garden wildlife. Suzanne will answer questions after her talk.

Suzanne Carter has been gardening in the Bay Area for 12 years. She has a certificate in landscape horticulture from Merritt College and has taught numerous pruning and design workshops. Along the way, she worked at East Bay Wilds Nursery for several years. As her company name Urban Gardens suggests, she’s geared toward smaller city and suburban gardens. She tends to recommend the right plant for the right place, so she’s been working primarily with native plants for a while.

Join us at Native Here on Saturday, December 11 at 11 am to learn more.
The nursery will be open during regular Saturday hours: 10 am - 2 pm.
