Pictured is the Merryspring perennial garden in early morning.

Camden — Gardener John Fromer will lead a program about perennial garden design at Merryspring Nature Center Tuesday, July 14 at noon.

Fromer will teach gardeners different design methods for a variety of gardens. He will speak about the importance of knowing the garden environment and soil conditions, and how to consider garden progress from either scratch or a redesign. Fromer will also describe selecting and sorting the right plants for season-long blooms and anticipating growth.

Fromer has been a Maine Master Gardener since 1998 and runs Appleton Ridge Flower and Vegetable Farm with his wife Kathy, also a Maine Master Gardener.

This event is part of the Summer Talk series. Due to the on-going pandemic, guests must take safety seriously during this program, and are advised to wear face masks. Seating for this event will be outdoors in chairs set-up a safe distance apart. This event is subject to change due to state and local regulations.

The cost is $5, with free admission for Merryspring members. Guests are encouraged to bring exact change to minimize cash transactions.

Merryspring is located at the end of Conway Road, just off of Route 1 in Camden behind Hannaford Shopping Plaza. For more information, contact or call 236-2239.
