Planting the right plants in the right place will minimize maintenance, maximizing the opportunity to enjoy the plants with little physical input. Some plants need greater attention if not planted in the right place, which might include space, soil, and moisture conditions. This workshop on Friday, September 13, will identify proper plant selection according to placement based on habits, care requirements, fragrances, textures, and color within an ornamental perennial garden.
