Interested in gardening with native plants? Don't know where to start? Join our Land Stewardship Manager, Julie Batty, as she teaches the benefits of native plants and how to incorporate native plants in your garden. The program will include a tour of Blandford's own native gardens and a discussion of how to select plant species and prepare your garden bed for planting.
