LAKEWOOD, WA – Lakewold Gardens is thrilled to host expert horticulturist and certified arborist, Dr. Linda Chalker-Scott. Please join us for an afternoon lecture as Chalker-Scott discusses her award winning first book, The Informed Gardener (2008, University of Washington Press). This is a science-based book that examines the most common myths and misconceptions that plague home gardeners and horticultural professionals. During this lecture, Chalker-Scott will address various topics from her book that will help gardeners take better, more effective care of their plants. Participants will leave with a better understanding of landscape or garden plants as components of a living system, which will save time, money, and energy when taking care of your garden.
