'My Garden' series continues at library

Monday, May 25, 2015

The second program in the Putnam County Public Library's "My Garden" series is scheduled for 6-7 p.m. Thursday, May 28.

The library's own Conni Wrightsman will give a presentation on gardening with native plants.

In 1999, Wrightsman read the book, "Go Native!" by Carolyn Harstad and became hooked on gardening with native plants. She enjoys spending the day in her woods collecting wildflowers, ferns and moss for her flower beds.

She said native plants are uniquely suited to the local environment and she finds incorporating native plants into her gardening rewarding.

A lifelong Hoosier who grew up in Owen County, Wrightsman has lived in Putnam County for almost four years.
