Topics of interest to Front Range gardeners are the focus of the 2017 Twilight Garden Series, which will feature three informative presentations this month: “Celebrating Native Plants,” “Promoting Pollinators” and “Bringing the Trial Gardens Home.”

The series is offered annually by CSU’s Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture[2], CSU Extension[3] and The Gardens on Spring Creek[4]. The Twilight Garden Series[5] is an outreach effort that provides Front Range gardeners with research-based knowledge and strategies for success.

Registration is available from 5:30 to 6 p.m. at each event location. Cost to attend is $10 per session, or $25 for all three sessions. Refreshments and door prizes will be provided.
