Williamson County Public Library
Planning on putting in an herb garden this spring? Well, come on to the Main Library on April 25th.
Herbs have been used for medicinal, culinary and fragrance purposes for centuries. Find out which herbs grow well in our region of Tennessee and which may be beneficial or just beautiful in your landscape. We will also discuss the use of specific herbs as companion plants to enhance growth and/or deter issues. You can have an edible landscape as well.
Register so the presenter can have enough handouts for everyone!
