Kathy Jentz:

Common Gardening Challenges


The Beltsville Garden Club will hold its January general meeting on Wednesday, January 28, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. in the Multipurpose room of the James E. Duckworth School on Evans Trail in Beltsville, Maryland.

Featured will be speaker Kathy Jentz, editor and publisher of Washington Gardener Magazine, and a specialist in small space and urban gardening. Ms. Jentz will talk about “ Common Gardening Challenges”, including poor landscape drainage, gardening on a slope, planting in clay soil, and small spaces. She takes a do-it-yourself, hands-in-the-dirt approach that emphasizes practical advice while not ignoring the fun and humor of learning from past mistakes.

Ms Jentz has been featured in numerous Washington, DC-area publications and she appears on regular gardening guest spots on television and radio programs in Washington, DC.

She is also the Green Media columnist for the Mid-Atlantic Grower newspaper, where she does a great deal of hand-holding and coaxing to get independent garden centers, plant breeders, and other horticultural businesses to join the social media revolution and maximize their online brands.

Refreshments will be served after the meeting. Please bring a plant or plant-related item for the door prize table.
