If If you have ever walked through the yard of an older house, you may have noticed parallel depressions that some people call “ghosts.” These charming areas tell you that a garden was once planted there, or was a lane that led to the vegetable garden. This workshop presented by Kent County Master Gardener Beverly Gemmill, will describe plants and ornamentals that our ancestors used to grow, considered areas of grace and utility and learn how we can use some of these ideas to bring charm and usefulness to our own landscape. This workshop is free of charge. Call 730-4000 to register.
