Plant Talk: Your Landscape Questions Answered, September 23
Event Description

Do you have a burning question you’ve always wanted to ask a landscape design or maintenance expert? Do you have a question about a specific plant or landscape challenge where nothing seems to work no matter what you do?

Styled after NPR’s long-running and popular “Car Talk” program and continued from the 2020, 2021 and 2022 Water Conservation Showcases, this session is designed to address landscape, garden and plant questions from attendees. 

All past Plant Talk sessions are available on demand here.

Attend this session if you have questions about your landscape or plantings or want to hear answers to others' questions. Session will also include best practices for managing landscapes during drought conditions.
