Layering Your Landscape: How, Which, Where and Why to Add Native Plants with Janet Davis
Tuesday, March 9, 2021
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Learn to see the garden in a different way, and how to add more native plants into your landscape—and why it matters. By using native plants, employing sustainable techniques and layering our gardens, we become a ‘part of nature’ rather than ‘apart from nature’!
Janet Davis received a Bachelor’s Degree in Horticulture from Virginia Tech and has spent her entire working career growing something—fruit, veggie gardens, indoor plants, herbs and landscape plants, and her daughter, Olivia (now 15). Now known as the “cheerleader” for native plants, Janet Davis operates Hill House Farm & Nursery, which grows and sells only U.S.A. native plants, primarily mid-Atlantic natives and select cultivars. She also offers landscape design and consultation services.
Have you heard that using native plants in your yard helps improve the environment for you, your community and Virginia’s wildlife, but you are not sure where to start?
The Plant Virginia Natives campaign, of which the Virginia Native Plant Society is a partner, is pleased to be collaborating with other regional campaigns across the state to offer this series of 12 webinars – 6 this spring and 6 this fall for gardeners just learning that Virginia natives are the best choice!
The webinars will guide you through the why and how to turn your home garden into a beautiful retreat for your family and a native habitat for birds and other wildlife.
The series kicks-off on Friday, March 5, 2021 at 6:30 pm with an engaging presentation by Dr. Douglas Tallamy, renowned author of Nature’s Best Hope. Dr. Tallamy’s photography and message of hope is not to be missed!
Sign-up for all 12 webinars for just $10!
The Plant Virginia Natives Landscaping with Natives webinar series is being coordinated and funded, in part, by the Virginia Coastal Zone Management Program through grants from the NOAA Office for Coastal Management to the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality.
The webinar is also being sponsored and hosted on Zoom by Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden and Blue Ridge PRISM.
