The Missouri Prairie Foundation is hosting a free Grow Native! webinar about succession planting.
It is arguably every gardener’s dream to have plants in bloom from spring through fall in their native gardens. Presenters Alix Daniel and Cydney Ross will share their knowledge and expertise on how to keep the native wildflower blooms popping through the growing season.
This free, 30-minute presentation will be followed by a question/answer session. A link to a recording of the webinar will be emailed to registrants.
This webinar will be recorded, and made available to registrants after the event.
