Gardens and Tonic: Vegetable Gardening Q&A

June 18 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Grab your favorite beverage and join us virtually with David Mattern, Horticulturist at Chanticleer Garden in Wayne, Pennsylvania. Since there is so much interest in vegetable gardening right now, and David is an expert on all things vegetables (successful growing, combinations and designing with them, best care practices, fun and unusual varieties, etc.), we thought we’d have an open format this week where you can ask David your questions. Thank you for sending your veggie-garden related question to Julie Jenney by June 16!


Gardens and Tonic is a weekly question and answer virtual session with horticulture professionals. Join Julie Jenney from the Scott Arboretum and a featured horticulture professional each week on Thursdays at 4 pm for gardening questions, adventures, and discussion! Participants may be asked to submit photos related to their garden question before the session. Registration is free but required as sessions are limited to 25. Grab your favorite beverage and join us for what we know will be lively discussions!


Registration is required and limited to 25 people to allow for conversation. Registrants will receive an email with a zoom link to participate. Participants must have Zoom downloaded on their computer and be comfortable using it.
