Speaker: Sarah Dickert, Horticulturist, Smithsonian Gardens

Sarah Dickert, Smithsonian Gardens staff

Start off the new year with a refresher (or starter!) course in Gardening 101. Horticulturist Sarah Dickert will take us through an overview of the most common gardening terms, techniques, tools, and more. What is a hardiness zone and what’s yours? Pruners, shovels, and rakes- oh my! What do those three numbers on a fertilizer bottle mean? Is there really a difference between part shade and part sun? Watering- it might not be as obvious as you think. This presentation will be great for newbie and experienced gardeners alike; there’s always more to learn!
