Great heritage plants for your garden

Carleton Wood, director of Hills & Dales Estate in LaGrange, Georgia will be the guest speaker at the Backyard Association meeting scheduled for Aug 13 at 7 p.m. at the Coweta County Extension Office.

Old gardens and cemeteries frequently contain old-fashioned plants that have gone out of style and been forgotten. Many have been replaced by modern hybrids and recently developed cultivars that everybody grows. During this talk Mr. Wood will share a wide variety of unique heritage garden plants that deserve a place in your garden. You'll leave with a list of plants that have stood the test of time and are sure to brighten your garden, add seasonal interest and bring you years of enjoyment. We'll touch on flowering shrubs, perennials, flowering trees and perhaps even a few bulbs and annuals.

The Backyard Association, sponsored by Coweta County Master Gardener Extension Volunteers (MGEVs), is a free seminar held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Coweta County Extension Office located at 255 Pine Road in Newnan. Call the Extension Office at 770-254-2620 for reservations and to register for door prizes.
