Growing Native Plants From Seed with Hope Leeson
The Friends of the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History
& Association to Preserve Cape Cod
Restoring Native Plant Communities with Natives Grown from Seed
Sunday, April 28, 2019 at 1pm
Botanist for the Rhode Island Natural History Survey and founder of Rhody Native™, Hope Leeson will present ways gardeners can increase diversity of restored plant communities by planting native plants grown from seed, and make strong connections to the landscapes they create.
As a botanist with nearly 30 years of field experience in southern New England, Hope Leeson's feet and eyes have traveled over most of the state of Rhode Island. Her many years of determining where the edge of a wetland lies, searching forests for rare and unusual plants, mapping locations where invasive plants have become established, and consulting with landowners on habitat management, have contributed to her intimate knowledge of Rhode Island's natural areas and plant communities.

With a climate in equal measure challenging and rewarding, the Cape and Islands of MA provide a bold canvas for any would-be tamers of this unique landscape. In these pages, C.L. Fornari offers expert advice with the warm and casual tone of a broadly knowledgeable and informed friend.
The author of many acclaimed gardening books, C.L. has lived and gardened on the Cape for twenty-five years. Drawing on her own experience, she deftly disentangles the many idiosyncrasies and potential pitfalls of growing a healthy and beautiful garden, both there and on the surrounding islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. Complete with an index to help you navigate the parade of flowers, fungicides, and footstools, Sand & Soil is the perfect how-to survival guide to alleviate your horticultural anxieties and bring forth beautiful blooms from the sandy soil of this legendary landscape.
C.L. Fornari is a creative gardening expert and self-defined “plant geek” who transitioned from artist to garden communicator in 1995. She is the author of eight books as well as the host of GardenLine, heard on WXTK, and co-host of Plantrama, a podcast produced by Zachos and Fornari.
