Tips about native plants, hostas and a plant sale on tap

Dawes Arboretum is offering a variety of ways this week to learn about native plants.

Fall might be the time to stop and appreciate the fruits of one’s garden, but it’s also the time to start planning for next year.

Anyone interested in learning how to create a more sustainable landscape will benefit from a weeklong symposium at the Dawes Arboretum, with virtual talks in the evening and a full day of in-person activities on Sept. 25, when the arboretum will also conduct its fall plant sale.

Those with more modest goals can learn about hostas and other shade-tolerant plants in a program at the Wagnalls Library, or find out how to put the lawn and garden to bed for the year at the Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens.
