October 2017 - Putting Your Garden to Bed - Answers to All Your Gardening Questions
Paul Parent - Noted Radio Personality, Horticulturist, Public Speaker, Garden Consultant
It was a lovely autumn day with the foliage in full color when we met at The Red Fox for another fabulous Lunch and Learn program. We had 93 members and guests in attendance. There was a brief business meeting followed by a short break and then reconvened in the main dining room for a wonderful lunch and the much anticipated educational program.
“Good Morning, Gardeners” may be a familiar greeting to many of our members. Paul Parent has hosted the popular Paul Parent Gardening Club for more than 25 years. More than a half million listeners tune in each Sunday to hear his common sense gardening information.
Gardening has become the No. 1 hobby of America. “People are hesitant to ask the most basic gardening questions because they don’t know where to go” and Paul is their answer.
As quoted from his website, Paul is probably responsible for more successful flower and vegetable beds, lawns and landscape projects, in all New England states, than any other one regional garden authority. Paul shared with us his extensive knowledge focusing on “putting our gardens to bed” and also provided great advice and answers to all of our most puzzeling gardening questions. His presentation was outstanding and no one wanted it to end. Afterwards, Paul sold and autographed his beautiful garden journals. All in all, a spectacular program on a beautiful day.
