Gary Eichen, Manager of Plant Health Care and Bio-Turf Lawn for Mike’s Tree Surgeons in Troy, will speak on “Hidden Bugs and Blights”. The beginning signs of pathogens and infestations in trees and shrubs can sometimes be missed by gardeners. It’s important to catch them early so they don’t progress into more serious problems.
Julia Hofley, Garden Writer of Julia’s Big Life, will speak on “Captivating Combinations”. She will discuss how color, form and texture are used to create head-turning arrangements in containers as well as garden beds.
