Nardozzi

Charlie Nardozzi's topic was "Gardening in New England" with a focus on perennials, shrubs, vines and trees. He described many familiar as well as unfamiliar plants and their use in Vermont gardens with varying light and moisture conditions. Examples are plants best for slopes, full sun and various degrees of shade including "wet shade" and "dry shade" environments.

Some in the audience were feverishly taking notes, and Charlie adeptly answered all of the many questions posed. After the presentation, he was available to autograph his book on month-by-month gardening in New England for those purchasing a copy.
