Wendy Andresen will present a follow-up talk in a series on Tending the Perennial Garden on Wednesday, July 20 at noon at Merryspring Nature Center.

Andresen has now presented two talks in her ongoing garden series, Tending the Perennial Garden, which is based on techniques outlined in Tracy DiSabato-Aust’s garden reference book “The Well-Tended Perennial Garden.” In this talk, participants will have the opportunity to see how the plants cut back in June are responding to that treatment. Andresen will point out which plants have bloomed out and can now be cut back and will demonstrate techniques.

Wendy and her husband, Ray, moved to Camden in 2006 from Connecticut, where they owned and managed a garden design and maintenance business. Wendy currently serves as a volunteer at Merryspring, where she maintains the park’s perennial beds.

Admission to this talk is free to Merryspring members and children. There is a $5 charge for non-members. Merryspring is a member-supported nonprofit nature education center and park located at the end of Conway Road just off Route 1 by the Hannaford shopping plaza in Camden.
