Landscaping program

May 22, 2013 by Randy Keck

Event Date: 
Thu, 06/13/2013 - 6:30pm

Beautyberry by Eileen PorterManon Shockey will lecture about landscaping with native plants at the next meeting of The Cross Timbers Chapter of the Native Plant Society, which will meet at 6:30 pm on June 13 at the Cherry Park Community Center, 313 Davis Street in Weatherford.

Shockey joined the Tarleton State University family as Instructor and Horticulture Center Manager in August of 2008. As a horticulture instructor, she teaches Greenhouse Crop Production, Retail Horticulture, Floriculture, Plant Propagation, and Environmental Horticulture.

With water a major concern, native plants offer a smart alternative to the traditional landscaping. Once established, native plants require little water, no fertilizer nor pesticides, and provide food and shelter for animals, birds, butterflies, and bees. Many native plants bloom throughout the summer, offering a variety of colors and textures.

The Cross Timbers Chapter of the NPSOT meets the second Thursday of the month at its new location, Cherry Park Community Center. Its mission is to promote the conservation, research, and utilization of native plants and plant habitats in Texas through education, outreach, and example.  For more information, visit http://npsot.org/CrossTimber or call Eileen Porter at 817-596-5567. The public is welcome and light refreshments will be served.
