Houseplants – Successful Indoor Gardening

April 2, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Registrations are closed for this event


One of the few positive effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and its resulting isolation has been an increase in the number of people who have purchased or “adopted” houseplants.  If you’re one of those plant newbies, or even if you’re an “expert”, please join us Saturday, April 2 at 1:00 pm for our presentation and discussion “Houseplants – Successful Indoor Gardening”.  The talk will offer practical considerations for choosing and caring for houseplants that will flourish in your home.  Growing plants indoors can enhance your home, improve indoor air quality, and facilitate mental well-being.  It is a wonderful activity for kids and adults alike.  There will be an opportunity for Q&A as well.

Our presenters are Master Gardeners Thea Wehmann and Michelle Winkler.  Thea was infected with a love of houseplants and everything floral at an early age.  Following a practical career at a major financial services firm, Thea retired and relocated to a lovely property in Goshen, CT, completing her Master Gardener certification in 2019.  Now her time is devoted to renovating the landscape of her 8+ acre “paradise” with her husband, chickens, honeybees, and, of course, raising the ante on the care of her houseplants.  Michelle is the Litchfield County Master Gardener Coordinator and an Advanced Master Gardener.  She grows fruit, vegetables, flowers, and herbs on her Canton property.  She enjoys educating gardeners about sound garden practices and the importance of removing invasive plants from your property.  She also volunteers as the treasurer for The Friends of the Canton Public Library. Home gardeners can contact her office with questions via email at LitchfieldMasterGardeners@uconn.edu.

Space is limited and registration is required for this free, in-person program.  To sign up, click the Register link or call the library at 860-693-5800.  Canton Public Library is located at 40 Dyer Avenue in Canton.
