Twilight Garden Series offers three summer programs for Front Range gardeners

Topics of interest to Front Range gardeners are the focus of the 2016 Twilight Garden Series, which will feature three informative presentations in June and July.

Presentations will address gardening with ease, drip irrigation and xeriscaping, selecting the best perennials and annuals, and information about Plant Select®.

The series is offered annually by CSU’s Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture, CSU Extension and the Gardens on Spring Creek. The Twilight Garden Series is an outreach effort that provides Front Range gardeners with research-based knowledge and strategies for success.

Each presentation will feature guest speakers who are experts in their fields.

The Twilight Garden Series is open to the public. Cost to attend is $10 per session, or $25 for all three sessions. Registration is available from 5:30-6 each event location. The program runs from 6-8 p.m. and will be held outside, rain or shine. Refreshments and door prizes will be provided.
