Guest Speaker: Cathy Kavassalis
Topic: Trees for Small Spaces
Often called the “backbone” of a garden, trees and shrubs provide structure and form. In addition to providing year-round beauty, they offer food and habitat for wildlife. But, how do you choose the right tree for your space? Native is best for biodiversity, but fruit bearing trees may be more to your taste. Large trees can be kept small, but there are many small trees and large shrubs that may be a better fit. The possibilities for small spaces, while not endless are extensive. Come and get a few ideas for creating your own small oasis.
