Over the past 10 years, Mike Prong of Fern Ridge Eco Landscaping Inc. has become a dedicated, enthusiastic and forward-thinking advocate of green practices in the landscape industry. He has had an interest in landscaping ever since he was a young boy growing up just outside London in Aylmer, Ontario, which then led to his enrolment in Fanshawe College’s Landscape Design program in the fall of 2009. With his hands-on industry experience, a broad knowledge of horticulture, and a heavy interest in the use of native plantings and increasing biodiversity, Mike has the ability to turn even the most basic of landscapes into an eco-friendly oasis.
Mike will share with us his thoughts on designing with and growing perennials, as well as using them to develop winter interest. He will review over 20 perennials that are easy to care for and provide a long season of interest. Mike will also highlight how to best grow them and will update members on new emerging varieties.
Our meetings always include decaf coffee (please bring your own mug) and a warm, inclusive, sharing environment. Guests are welcome.
We hope to see you there!
