Dry Shade Gardening Talk hosted by Silver Spring Garden Club

January 28 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


The Silver Spring Garden Club invites you to a talk on Dry Shade Gardening. Dealing with dry shade is a common challenge of many local gardeners. Large trees are wonderful, but they can quickly suck up all your garden’s resources leaving little for the understory plantings. Kathy Jentz will talk about design choices, soil amendments, and proven plant choices—as well as some inventive dry shade space substitutions.

Kathy Jentz is editor and publisher of Washington Gardener Magazine. Her mission is to turn black thumbs green. A life-long gardener, Kathy believes that growing plants should be stress-free and enjoyable. Her philosophy is inspiration over perspiration. She is the President of the Silver Spring Garden Club Club and on the board of several other clubs and organizations.

Kathy appears on regular gardening guest spots on international garden podcasts as well as on WTOP and WOWD-LP radio stations in Washington, DC. She is currently the Green Media columnist for the Mid-Atlantic Grower newspaper and she also edits the quarterly Water Garden Journal, the official publication of the International Waterlily & Water Gardening Society.

WHEN: Monday, January 28*, 8:00pm

Doors open at 7:30pm
