Creating a Pocket Meadow
With Lisa Wagner
Sat. May 16 from 10 – 11 AM plus Q&A
“Pocket” meadows of largely native plants provide an attractive, low-maintenance, and wildlife-friendly alternative to traditional perennial plantings, great for small-scale plantings around mailboxes, along driveways, or next to the back door. Unlike larger meadow plantings, small, informal, and simply managed meadows can be tucked into a variety of spaces in private and public landscapes, providing habitat and sustenance for pollinators and other insects, as well as being attractive landscape additions.
