Author Val Easton speaks at Molbak’s May 1

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

NW garden expert and Seattle Times columnist, Val Easton, will be speaking on how to Simplify your Gardening Life and signing copies of her recent book, The New Low Maintenance Garden, on May 1, at 9:30 am at Molbak’s.

Join Val and learn how to have a beautiful, productive garden and the time to enjoy it. Do you ever lament that you’d love to be able to garden more, but don’t have the time? The demanding pace of modern life can leave little space for the pleasures of gardening. On the other hand, gardening itself could be the culprit: elaborate traditional perennial borders; water-hungry or disease-prone plants; needy lawns; and high-maintenance plants that require staking or clipping all consume precious hours.

Learn how to have a low-maintenance garden that doesn’t sacrifice style. You won’t have to give up your favorite plants or settle for expanses of ugly bark nuggets. You just have to unlearn some bad habits and pick up good new ones.

May 1, noon–1pm
