Stateline gardeners are invited to attend a special community event as University of Illinois Extension welcomes Nancy Nedveck, owner of The Flower Factory in Stoughton, Wisconsin, for a free program at Nicholas Conservatory & Gardens. Nancy will share her passion for perennials through a two-part presentation. Attendees will leave with great ideas to try in their garden for the summer and the knowledge to execute them beautifully and successfully.
This program is free to the community, however pre-registration is required as space is limited. You can click here to register,
Nancy will begin the program with Mother Nature Hates a Void. We don’t like bare ground and neither does Mother Nature. No matter what size space, water or sun requirement, there are plants that will fit the area. Spacing at first keeps an easy care garden later on. Choose from tall spreaders, clump formers, or low ground covers to fill your garden voids.
After an intermission, Nancy will finish the evening with Color with Foliage. You don’t need just flowers for a colorful garden. Look for color and texture in foliage first then the blooms can be a compliment to the leaves.
If you need a reasonable accommodation to participate in this program, please contact the local Extension office at 815-986-4357. Early requests are strongly encouraged to allow sufficient time for meeting your access needs.
