Janet will talk to us about sex in the garden. But this is about pollination, so it is open to all and totally G-rated. LOL. Pollination is an essential part of life – our vegetables and fruit MUST pollinate in order to produce the food we need. She will talk about how we can help this process at our own homes.
Janet says she is a recovering plantaholic who considers the Master Naturalist, Master Gardener, and Native Landscape Certification training as her 12-step program. She now has a special interest in native plants and restricts her selections to heat and drought tolerant plants that multi-task by attracting pollinators like butterflies, bees, hummingbirds as well as lizards and other interesting insects.
Janet’s love of gardening didn’t start until after she took early retirement and decided to spruce up her dismal home landscape. She took the Master Gardening training and learned how to actually grow and care for plants and she embraced the concept of WaterWise Gardening in her landscape. She is also a Master Naturalist.
