CAMDEN – Maine master gardener John Fromer will lead a presentation titled “New Ideas in Perennial Design” on Tuesday, July 6 at 12 p.m. at the Merryspring Nature Center.

As part of his ongoing Perennial Gardening series at Merryspring, John Fromer will present this exciting talk on new and innovative methods to design and redesign the rear perennial garden. Fromer will talk about traditional and new garden design methods, including a few twists that will help visualize the garden, make key decisions, de-stress, and shorten the design and planning processes.
