Wild Seed Project: Gardening/Landscaping with Native Shade Plants, Beauties from Maine's Woodland Under Story

with Heather McCargo, BA, MA


Rethink what to plant in those shady areas! Many gardeners interested in native species are unsure what to plant in the shady spots of their yard. In this presentation, Heather looks to Maine’s natural woodlands for garden design inspiration, then showcases the many beautiful woody and herbaceous natives that thrive in the shade. Learn to transform your conventional garden and suburban landscape - and support ecosystem health, wild plant reproduction, pollinators and wildlife - by incorporating native Maine shade plants. Time for Q & A. Partial proceeds benefit The Wild Seed Project. Heather is founder and Executive Director of The Wild Seed Project; an educator with 30 years of expertise in plant propagation, ecological design and conservation; was head plant propagator at the New England Wildflower Society’s Garden in the Woods; has lectured nationally; and is widely published.
