Margaret will talk about what to plant for summer and fall blooms for feeding bees. She is a dedicated member of the Virginia Native Plant Society’s Potowmack Chapter and helps at their Green Spring Gardens propagation beds and helping people find the right native plants for their needs. She edits their newsletter (you can see it at vnps.org/potowmack under the “news” tab.) She has also taken the Virginia Master Naturalist training.
We will have some plants to raffle off for your garden :-)
