Front Porch Series - Overwintering Lavender

On September 8, 2022, we had a panel of expert growers across the U.S. come together to discuss approaches in preparation for winter based on where "you" live. This presentation is timely to learn what is important to know for prepping soil conditions, water requirements, temperatures where things happen differently, and a host of other things it’s helpful to know.

Featuring Panelists: Michele Capron, Mike Neustrom, Sandra Shuff, Curtis Swift, Martha Wilczynski, and Facilitated by Marilyn Kosel.
