Good & Bad Bugs in Your Garden-Virtual Program

Not all insects are bad for the garden. In fact, we rely on many to rid us of other unwanted invaders. This presentation describes some of the common beneficial and pest insects that gardeners encounter in New England. We will take a look at their habits and their life cycles as we discuss how their presence affects the success of our garden year.  Led by Bonnie Power, who has been a Massachusetts Master Gardener since 2016 and a serious outdoor/indoor gardener most of her life. Curious and research-oriented by nature, she has many horticultural interests and areas of expertise. Bonnie holds both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in Zoology, which informs her perspective on the management of garden insects. She also volunteers at Garden in the Woods, a Native Plant Trust botanical garden in Framingham, where she is a guide.

This is a virtual program, being held with the Tewksbury Public Library.

Hydrangeas-Which One is Right for Me?

This lecture focuses on the key points that gardeners should consider before they invest in a hydrangea. With over 600 cultivars to select from, it’s easy to select a plant based on some attributes only to find that it will definitely not be the “right plant in the right place.” The seven species are identified, examples of each are provided, and their best use in the landscape is examined. Led by Kathie Skinner, a Senior Principal Master Gardener, the past Education Coordinator and current Master Gardener Training Coordinator for the Massachusetts Master Gardner Association. She is a retired educator with over 40 years teaching and administering in K-12. Kathie currently does education policy research and writing for various state and national education organizations.

This is a virtual program, being held with the Tewksbury Public Library.
