Perennials can make your garden beautiful year after year

Tuesday, Apr. 08, 2014

You are invited to attend an inspiring program on raising perennials in your garden. Years ago, I didn't know what perennials were, and that the investment would help the garden to renew it's beauty year after year. When I buy annuals like Begonias or Marigolds, it's for one season only. Learn more about perennials from an expert, senior horticulturist Steve Huddleston of the Botanic Gardens in Fort Worth, when you attend a free meeting of the North Texas Daylily Society at 7 p.m. on Thurs., April 17, in the Camellia Room. His program will be "Perennials A-Z." This is the perfect time of year for this presentation. Meet our members and enjoy a meal prepared by our many good cooks. It's all free! During the month of April and May, I will be featuring a few of the perennials I learn about at this meeting.
