Whitby workshop to teach tips and tricks for urban gardening

March 28, 2018 by  

Shrubs and trees can be the final added touch to a city garden, and a Whitby workshop will share tips about selecting ones that will thrive in an urban environment.

The ‘Shrubs and Trees for the Urban Garden’ class, which will be facilitated by Denis Flanagan, will discuss how a yard and even a high rise balcony can become a lush garden through the use of containers planted with dwarf species that do not require a lot of care. The cultivars presented will be selected due to their tolerance for the harsh conditions that can sometimes be found in a city.

This workshop is being offered as part of the Whitby in Bloom Speaker Series, which is being offered to the public through the cooperation of Brooklin Horticultural Society. There is no monetary fee being charged to participate, but each person who is interested is asked to register ahead of time and to bring along a nonperishable donation for the local food bank. Booklet printing can be used to produce gardening guides to distribute to the attendees in a class such as this.

This session will be taking place on April 25th and it will begin at 7:30 pm sharp. The venue for the event will be Brooklin United Church, which is located at 19 Cassels Rd East in Whitby. Anyone who requires more information or who would like to sign up has been asked to visit the Whitby website.
