Fairlawn kicks off Garden Talk series

Get ready for spring with Fairlawn's Garden Talk series.

Local experts and state speakers share their expertise on a number of gardening topics, from roses and invasive species to insects. The presentations are geared toward both green thumbs and not-so-green thumbs around the Twin Ports region.

All the Garden Talks run 6-8 p.m. at Fairlawn Mansion in Superior.

Learn the A to Zs of roses on Thursday, growing orchids Feb. 24; invasive plants of the Northwoods and how to get involved March 9; aspects of healing horticulture is the topic March 16 and the series ends April 6 with a discussion of beneficial insects in the landscape beyond pollinators.

Each garden talk includes the presentation as well as a snack catered by "The Sweet Guys," with a question and answer session to finish the evening. Admission is $10 per presentation.
