**PLEASE NOTE LOCATION - THIS MEETING WILL BE AT TOWN HALL**
Groundcovers can provide the solution to many of your garden challenges! In addition to providing soil cover and suppressing weeds, they add texture and color to your garden with minimal maintenance. This program will cover a wide range of groundcovers that can thrive in all spots in your garden – in shade, in sun, on slopes or under trees. From evergreens to deciduous, herbaceous to woody, flowers to foliage, this group of plants will have something for you. Come explore beyond pachysandra and ivy!
