Lecture and book signing by Ruth Rogers Clausen

Delaware Master Gardeners invite the public to attend a free lecture on Tuesday, April 17, 6:30 p.m. featuring author and “plants woman”  Ruth Clausen who will speak on her book 50 Beautiful Deer-Resistant Plants. Keeping your beautiful garden safe from deer is as simple as choosing the right plants. Ruth introduces the most versatile and drool-worthy options: white snowdrops that bloom in the spring; shade-loving, electric gold hakone grass; long-blooming Texas sage in vibrant reds, peaches, and pinks; and the feathery foliage of Arkansas blue stars that glows golden in the autumn. The lecture is free. Books will be available for purchase at about $20.  Ruth will be available to sign books after the presentation. Click here to view or download the flyer.

The lecture will be held at the Carvel Research and Education Center, 16483 County Seat Highway (Route 9), Georgetown, Delaware 19947. The Carvel Center is 1/4 mile west of the Sussex Tech High School. Free parking is available. Please pre-register online or contact Tammy Schirmer at 302-856-2585, ext 544.
