Lesley Shepherd will discuss how to analyze your garden and adapt or tweak it to suit your lifestyle and gardening habits. October sees the start of the ‘real’ gardening season on the Lower Island, and many projects you can do over the winter months will make your garden healthier, more water efficient, and easier to manage. Don’t miss this interesting presentation on a very timely topic!
