The North Jersey members who attended the Plant Detectives Nursery tour and lecture in Chester on Wednesday evening, June 10 were treated to a great evening and informational event.
Nursery owner, Art Laster, not only hosted the event but also invited guest speakers Chris Rubino, from APLD’s national sponsor Monrovia, and John Mohr from Iseli Nursery to present some of their uncommon plants for APLDNJ designers to consider using in future landscape designs. Art spoke about under-used plants and provided dinner and beverages for all.
