Winter Lecture Series part 4- “Gardening in Troughs and the Plants that Thrive in Them””

March 27 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

The final lecture of the 2024 series features Marianne Dodge as she presents “Gardening in Troughs and the Plants that Thrive in Them”. A member of St Mary’s Garden Club, Marianne is also a member of the North American Rock Garden Society (NARGS). Troughs are most often used for planting miniature rock gardens,  but other plants can also thrive in them. Planting in a trough is useful for gardeners with less space or whose mobility limits traditional gardening in the ground. Marianne’s garden in Falmouth includes troughs, crevice, and other rock gardens, as well as traditional flowering borders and vegetables.The hybrid lecture welcomes the public in person upstairs in the historic McLaughlin Homestead at 97 Main Street (Route 26), South Paris. Anyone who is unable to attend in person can still enjoy the lecture online. To the zoom link, contact  Enjoy tea and baked goods at 3:30pm followed by the lecture at 4:00pm.
The tea and program are free and open to the public although donations are requested for the McLaughlin Garden. Each speaker is donating the lecture as a way to help keep the McLaughlin Garden open.  In case of inclement weather, please call the garden at 743-8820 or check the Garden’s Facebook page for a cancellation.
