Just in time for the fall planting season, City of Napa Water, UC Master Gardeners, and the California Native Plant Society (CNPS) team up for a free Water-Wise Plant Show on Tuesday, October 15, 6:30 to 8:30 pm, at the newly renovated Magnolia Room in the Senior Center, 1500 Jefferson Street. With slide presentations and dozens of live plants on hand, local landscape designer Katherine Novick will show Napans that water-efficient yards are anything but boring. Colorful and beautiful trees, shrubs, perennials, grasses, vines, and groundcovers will be reviewed, along with landscape design ideas focused on California native species. Attendees will also gain access to free literature, water-saving tools, and experts from the Napa County Master Gardeners and the CNPS Napa Valley Chapter. Lucky winners will even take home free plants and other great door prizes.
Our unpredictable climate makes water efficiency and conservation a way of life here. The start of the planting season is a great time to learn appropriate water-wise gardening habits, as efficient outdoor use remains the key to a reliable water future. Attendees are asked to register in advance for the Water-Wise Plant Show by calling (707) 257-9497 or emailing [email protected].
