Kathy Jentz
:
“Made in the Shade”


Please join us for the Beltsville Garden Club’s monthly meeting on Wednesday, September 25, 2019, 7:30 pm at the James Duckworth School, 11201 Evans Trail, Beltsville, Md.

Speaker Kathy Jentz will address shade gardening in her talk “Made in the Shade”. Dealing with dry shade is a common challenge of many local gardeners. Large trees are wonderful, but they can quickly suck up all your garden's resources leaving little for the understory plantings. We'll talk about design choices, soil amendments, and proven plant choices - as well as some inventive dry shade space substitutions.

Kathy Jentz is editor and publisher of Washington Gardener Magazine. Her mission is to turn black thumbs green. A life-long gardener, Kathy believes that growing plants should be stress-free and enjoyable. Her philosophy is inspiration over perspiration. She is currently the Green Media columnist for the Mid-Atlantic Grower newspaper, she edits the quarterly Water Garden Journal, and her work has been featured in numerous area publications including the Washington Examiner newspaper, Pathways Magazine, and Washington Women magazine. She appears on regular gardening guest spots on Channel 9, Channel 4, as well as WTOP, WAMU, and WOWD-LP radio stations in Washington, DC.

Meetings are open to the public, there is no fee. Refreshments are served after the speaker’s program; we thank all attendees who contribute to the refreshment table, and who bring a plant or plant related item for the door prize drawing.
