The Orcas Island Garden Club will welcome Dr. Linda Chalker-Scott to give a virtual presentation titled “The Informed Gardener: Gardening Myths” on Wednesday, April 21.

Chalker-Scott will help differentiate good gardening advice from bad advice. The answers may surprise you! Her work has debunked myths that in many cases were causing damage to plants and environmental health. She will share many of these myths with us today. Chalker-Scott is Washington State University’s Extension Urban Horticulturist, bringing science-based information to gardeners and landscape professionals. She is the award-winning author of five books, including the latest edition of Gardening with Native Plants of the Pacific Northwest.
