NICK VANN TO FOCUS ON PLANNING OR IMPROVING EXISTING HERB BEDS AT MARCH 15th MEETING
This month we continue our exploration of the Wonderful World of Herbs.
You asked for it -- and we are responding with a special program on designing your herb garden, or improving your existing one. Nick Vann, also known as Nematode Nick, is going to share some of his vast knowledge on landscape design, along with his dedication to organic gardening. Space limitations like creating an herb garden along a fence or under a tree, or in pots on a small patio, will be addressed. Nick will have slides to illustrate what works, how to avoid special problems, and when we should move certain herbs to a more productive location.
Nick is well known in the San Antonio area. He teaches landscape design for Master Gardner classes, and is active with the Texas Nursery and Landscape Association, as well as the Native Plant Society of Texas. He is a charter member of the National Gardening Club. His programs are much in demand, and we are fortunate to have him with us on March 21st. Incidentally, he and his wife, Leslie, are members of San Antonio Herb Society.
With spring around the corner, and herb planting time upon us, this is your opportunity to learn how to improve your growing practices and make your garden more decorative and productive. And bring a neighbor with you. This is a great time to acquaint them with our Society, and at the same time gain valuable insight into growing and using the useful herbs.
Nick teaches landscape design to Master Gardener and GVST classes, and is the only organic landscaper in San Antonio. Donít miss this one!
Meetings are held at the San Antonio Garden Center,
corner of Funston and North New Braunfels, at 7:00 p.m.,
with socializing and refreshments at 6:30 p.m.
(The March meeting is the only month in which the SAHS meeting is on the 3rd Thursday of the month because of the plant sale on the 2nd weekend.)
