We often hear that shrubs are the backbone of the garden. But exactly what does that mean and how best can we use shrubs in our gardens? Hint: it’s not always about the flowers.
This talk will introduce you to the many new shrubs on the market as well as old favorites. But the question remains: how precisely to use shrubs in our gardens. I’ll show you their fabulous foliage, and discuss maintenance requirements. Even deer resistance is an aspect I cover. Using some tried and true workhorses and these newer introductions, I’ll show you how easily you can design your garden and transform it to a low maintenance, colorful space using shrubs that will bring you pleasure for the entire growing season, sometimes without even a hint of a flower.
