Tom Hohman to Speak on Gardening with Natives

Tom Hohman, immediate past president of INPAWS, will speak on August 11 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. His aim: to teach us how—and why—to garden with plants native to our region.

Tom will show slides and living examples of the varieties most popular in home gardens, and suggest substitutes for common landscaping plants that are actually invasive in our area. After the workshop, all who are interested can join in a walk to Fall Creek, to identify invasive plants along the waterway.

Sponsored by Fall Creek Gardens, the talk will take place at the nearby Unleavened Bread Cafe, 3001 Central Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46205. There will be door prizes, so don’t miss this fun and informative event!

Learn how to garden the easy way–and let the plants do the work!

    I'd left a message earielr this week about the bare-root perennials I bought at the plant sale. They had some clear crystals around them and I planted them around the plants in my garden upstate. Recently I noticed that the crystals had turned into kind of a gooey mass. Should I just leave them there and assume they'll eventually be absorbed into the soil?Many thanks!
