Rogers Park Garden Group meeting 8/26

This month's presentation will be Keeping Your Trees Terrific with John Eskandari, Plant Acquisitions Manager, Tree & Shrub Dept., Gethsemane Garden Center. We rely on trees for beauty, shade, and multiseasonal interest in any green space from a garden to a terrace. Colorful bark, mosaic-like exfoliation, bud colors and overall structure are important interests to consider when choosing a tree - even for a pot. Now, how do you care for it? Last year's popular speaker and certified arborist, John Eskandari, returns to talk about all things arbor: the overall health of woody plants, winter protection and moisture, fall feeding, what to do in the spring, and much more. There will be a raffle drawing for a copy of The Trees in My Forest by Bernd Heinrich.

The meeting will be held at RP Presbyterian Church, Fellowship Room, 7059 N. Greenview, 7 p.m. For more information, click here.
