On June 29, the Fredericksburg chapter of the Native Plant Society will host Priscilla Stanley who will speak about Native Plants best used in your home garden.
Native plants can save you time, money and water when used in your landscape. They are easy care since they don’t need fertilizer or pesticides. This presentation will help you select a variety of native plants to thrive in your growing conditions from various perennials, ground covers, vines, shrubs and trees, and know how to care for them. Priscilla has hands-on experience growing all the plants in the presentation in her native landscape.
Priscilla Stanley and her husband, Jim, had careers as chemists, mostly in New York and New Jersey and have retired in the hill country. They have been members of the Native Plant Society of Texas – Kerrville Chapter for 13 years and Certified Texas Master Naturalists for 8 years. Priscilla gardened for 32 years in the northeast. Then she came to the Hill Country and began growing mostly Texas native plants. She and Jim grow all the plants that she will be discussing on their land. They really enjoy their new career as Master Naturalist volunteers sharing information on natural resources and land management in the Hill Country.
The meeting will be held at 7pm on Tuesday, June 29 at 312 W. San Antonio Street in Fredericksburg.
