Lockwood's Greenhouses


Gardening expert Sally Cunningham will present a free talk, “After the Storm: Assess and Correct (or Live with) the Ravages of Winter,” at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, March 14 at Lockwood’s Greenhouses, 4484 Clark St., Hamburg.

The talk is free, but the class may fill up, so registration is necessary. Call 649-4684 to register. Please register as soon as possible. Lockwood’s will consider adding a second class if the first fills up.

In addition to the Snowvember Storm, your landscape may have suffered damage from wind, deep freezes, heavy snow and animals such as deer and rabbits.

Cunningham will discuss what you can fix and when you can fix it. If branches have cracked and a shrub is lopsided, can you cut it all back and will it re-grow? Which shrubs and trees can be salvaged and which are best replaced? If you are replacing a damaged plant, what evergreen or deciduous choice would be smarter?

There will be time to ask questions and you can even bring photos of your landscape and the damage that you are inquiring about.
