2012 was hot and dry – how will landscapes respond in the years to come?

This program will discuss growth expectations in 2013 on lawns, newly planted trees, shrubs and evergreens.

How will the drought affect flowering plants such as perennials, flowering shrubs and ornamental trees?

What should we be looking for with established trees and what are some of the best management practices for helping landscape plants recover?
