Perennials, Ponds, and Innovative Landscapes
Practical Garden Tips and gardening information from an expert who knows from hands-on experience. Let's face it, perennials are not 'no-brainers'.
Gardening Matters is a place for gardeners to get solutions to everyday gardening problems, answers to the questions that plague them, information to sharpen gardening skills while simplifying garden chores.
Few of us are lucky enough to have a good garden center or nursery near us where we can get good information about the plants: how to grow them, keep them healthy, and long-range care. KC’s mission is to pass on the information she’s gathered from her 'internship' with Mother Nature; including twelve years with her perennial plant nursery (Hawks Nest Nursery) on an eight-acre property, and her now 20 year business designing, installing and maintaining private gardens.
KC’s diverse practical background, ignited by her passion for teaching and gardening, brings her here to help beginning gardeners get off on the right foot, and help experienced gardeners because a 'true' gardener is never done! It’s not just about making it pretty, it’s also about keeping it pretty. She will give you very useful gardening tips and techniques while keeping you posted about her much sought after lectures, workshops, and published articles. KC’s workshops showcase her love of perennials, bird gardening, water features, containers, weeding, and much more.
Some of what you will find in Gardening Matters:
KC will do her level best to enlighten you to the world of a life-long, enjoyable, healthful obsession called gardening.
