Durham Master Gardeners presents Xeriscaping (Gardening Series part 1 of 2)

In our urban environments it is becoming important that we learn how to conserve water. The goal of xeriscaping is to design and create gardens that can survive dry periods on their own without supplemental watering or fertilizing. This presentation by the Durham Master Gardeners will help you understand how to conserve water in the garden and select and maintain the right plants.
Rain gardens will also be discussed.

At the Central Library: Tuesday, March 3rd from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Also join us for the second part of our Gardening Series, next Tuesday when Durham Master Gardeners will present Pollinators and Native Plants
