“Succulents: Striking, Simple and Successful” on April 9

April 2, 2019

Please join us at the library for a class on “Succulents:  Striking, Simple and Successful” by Master Gardener, Ellen Culver this Tuesday, April 9 at 7:00 p.m.  Succulents provide gorgeous low maintenance options for your home, garden or containers.  Learn about the vast array of easy-care succulents that add color and texture and are easy to propagate.

Ellen Culver and her husband Max garden on nearly an acre near Bloomington.  Raised bed vegetables, container gardens, succulents, perennials and a front-yard shade garden are among what Ellen admits may be too many gardens.  Ellen became a Master Gardener in McLean County in 2011 and is active with the group’s educational programs at the historic Sarah’s Garden at the David Davis Mansion in Bloomington, gives presentations as part of the Speaker’s Bureau, loves working the Help Desk at Extension and is one of the Master Gardeners taking call-in questions on WJBC radio.  Ellen became hooked on succulents a few years ago and now features them in many of her container gardens.
