In Unison: Creating Harmonious Combinations for Pollinators and You

Feb. 11, 2023 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.


Your garden has so much potential. It could become a haven where pollinators thrive, dine and reproduce. How do you create such a place? With flowers. And while bulking up on the blossoms, you might as well make every moment beautiful. Led by garden author Tovah Martin, this lecture provides ideas for a pollinator-pleasing place where colors echo while textural themes reverberate and weave in and out throughout the growing season. Photographed at Furthermore — the instructor’s garden — this lecture is an intimate chronicle of a community of plants and their interrelationships. Steal these ideas! Co-hosted with New England Botanical Garden.
