Wendy Andresen will present part four in a series on Tending the Perennial Garden on Tuesday, Sept. 6 at noon at Merryspring Nature Center.

Labor Day is not the end of the gardening season. 

Wendy Andresen will continue her garden demonstration series with a presentation concerning autumn maintenance. Learn how to prepare plants for colder weather while coaxing autumn color from your perennials. Participants need not have attended prior demonstrations in order to attend part four. Andresen’s demonstrations are based on techniques outlined in Tracy DiSabato-Aust’s classic garden reference book, “The Well Tended Perennial Garden.” Copies of the book will be available for purchase.

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

This program is part of Merryspring’s Summer Tuesday Talk Series, which is co-sponsored by The First and by Jaret and Cohn.

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