I can speak to your group

If you’d like an entertaining and informative gardening talk, contact me.

“Oh, Deer!” is my newest talk. Find out why gardeners now have so many problems with deer and get some tips on how you can deal with these hungry critters. Disclaimer: No, there isn’t any foolproof way of stopping deer, but there are things that might help.

In “45 Gardening Tips in 45 minutes,” I share some of the best tips I’ve come across while interviewing home gardeners and gardening experts. It’s fun just to see if I can squeeze them all in! This is also a PowerPoint presentation. Of course, this presentation can be adjusted to fit various time frames.

“45 More Gardening Tips in 45 Minutes.” I’ve found 45 new tips, and I’ll follow the same format, scrambling to offer one tip per minute. It’s fun just to see whether I can beat the clock!

In “Get Crafty in Your Garden,” I’ll show you ideas for items you can make for your garden as well as from your garden.

In “Express Your Personality,” I show you how folks have created gardens that reflect their lifestyles and personalities. I’ll share their gardening tips, too. The presentation aims to motivate you to be creative in your garden and share your own personality.

“Don’t Just Gawk—Learn on Garden Walks!” Garden walks are fun, but if all you do is look at the yards as if you’re a tourist, you’re missing out on a great opportunity to learn how to make your own landscape better. I will show you how to make sure you come home from garden walks with great ideas you can use in your own landscape, and I’ll share gardening tips I learned on garden walks.
