autumn equinox plant walk september 21st


Although the growing season is winding down, fall is a wonderful time to get out in the garden. Warm soil and autumn rains provide optimal conditions for getting plants established so they'll be ready to thrive come spring.

Join us for a fall plant walk led by garden coach Susan Papanikolas. Enjoy autumnal color, gather inspiration and ideas for what to plant, and see for yourself what that plant in the container at the nursery looks like in an established yard.  Field trippers will learn how to choose plants to suit their particular needs by considering size, color, texture, and growth characteristics. Whether you are a DIY landscaper, homeowner on a budget, or just curious about what plants thrive in the Northwest, this is the field trip for you!

Field trippers will go home with a list of recommended fall season plants, care and location suggestions to keep them healthy, and a coupon to City People's Garden Store to get your fall project started.

Susan Papanikolas is a garden coach, landscape designer, and owner of How Does Your Garden Grow. She believes that life is too short and our gardens are too small to live with plants you don't like.
