SEMINAR: Deer & Critter Resistant Plants

DATE: Saturday, April 8, 2023
TIME: 10:30am – 11:30am
COST: Free 
LOCATION: The Gardener’s Center

Gardening on properties with wildlife that have appetites for plants can be extremely frustrating for the home gardener. Repellent sprays and fencing can be used to keep critters at bay, but why not just use plants that they will have little, if any, interest in eating in the first place?

Join us as Sean discusses his favorite deer and critter resistant annuals, perennials and shrubs for our  Connecticut gardens. Control measures to keep the wildlife away from plants they do like to nibble at will also be discussed.

There is no fee for this seminar, but signing up here is required to secure your spot. Simply follow the prompts for entering in your information and you’ll be all set!

Chamber Jam 2022 was a big success! 

The Gardener’s Center was proud to partner with the Darien Chamber of Commerce and other local businesses to bring our community together in celebration of our wonderful town. Headlining musical guest, The Spadtastics and opening band, Waller, provided live music throughout the evening. Proceeds from Chamber Jam benefited the Chamber Charitable Foundation initiatives, including their Scholarship and Holiday Lights programs.
