The Right-Size Flower Garden: Book Signing with Kerry Ann Mendez

Wednesday 18 February 2015, 05:30pm - 08:00pm

In the instance of extreme weather conditions, the snow date for this event will be February 25, 5:30-8pm.

Please join us for a presentation and book signing celebrating "The Right-Size Flower Garden," the newest book from top-selling author Kerry Ann Mendez.

Kerry Ann Mendez will speak on the subject of her new book, "The Right-Size Flower Garden: Simplify Your Outdoor Space with Smart Design Solutions and Plant Choices." Change Happens. Many still dream of 'Better Homes and Gardens' landscapes but reality has muddied the picture. Job demands, kids, money, hectic schedules, aging bodies, and changing interests have led to nightmare gardens. Time for some editing. This inspiring lecture provides easy-to-follow right-sizing strategies, recommended no-fuss plant material, and design tips for stunning year round gardens that will be as close to 'autopilot' as you can get.

Kerry Ann Mendez is dedicated to teaching the art of low-maintenance perennial gardening and landscaping. As a garden consultant, designer, writer and lecturer, she focuses on time-saving gardening techniques and workshorse plant material as well as organic practices. She has been in numerous magazines, a featured guest on HGTV and local garden segments, and was the recipient of Mass Hort's 2014 Gold Medal of Honor for outstanding service to the field of horticulture.
