Horticultural Society of South Jersey meeting budding with tips


“Buds, Blooms, Berries and Bark – Native Plants for Multiple Seasons of Interest” with Kathleen Salisbury Director, Ambler Arboretum of Temple University will take place on June 11 at 7 p.m. as part of the Horticultural Society of South Jersey’s monthly meeting. Frequently in New Jersey, space in our yards is limited. We must be choosy when it comes to plant selection.

Kathy Salisbury’s rule is “if I can’t eat you, you must be interesting in at least three seasons to live in my yard,” and so she started collecting native plants with multiple seasons of interest. Sometimes this requires thinking differently about a plant’s features and it always results in a more dynamic landscape.

Salisbury will cover some of her favorite native trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants that delight throughout the year while challenging us to redefine interesting. This event is free and open to the public. It will take place at the Carman Tilelli Community Center located at 820 Mercer Street in Cherry Hill.
