Wendy Andresen will host a September session of her Tending the Perennial Garden series at Merryspring Nature Center Tuesday, Sept. 3, at noon.

In September, many late-blooming perennial plants are showing their true colors, while many of the gardens early bloomers have already gone to seed. Wendy will demonstrate garden management methods specifically for the late summer garden. Guests may bring envelopes if they wish to capture some seeds to take home.

As always Tracy DiSabato-Aust's seminal book "The Well Tended Perennial Garden" will serve as a reference for the material, copies of which, among other garden tools and merchandise will be for sale after the presentation.

This is an outdoor presentation. Guests should meet outside at the Hexagon gazebo at noon. Participants are reminded to wear weather-appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes to this event.

The cost for this event is free for Merryspring members, with a $5 fee for non-members.

This talk is part of the Summer Talk series at Merryspring sponsored by Camden National Bank and Jaret & Cohn Real-Estate.
