Marisa Thomson, NMSU Extension Horticulture Specialist Speaks on Native Plants for Exciting New Mexico Gardens, 7 p.m. Thursday May 6.
Gardening in New Mexico can be tough. You can make it easier by incorporating native plant species that thrive in our conditions. Thomson will present on how to select, care for, and integrate native plants into your garden and landscape.
Thompson is responsible for active Cooperative Extension and research programs supporting sustainable horticulture. In addition to studying landscape mulches for improved perennial plant root establishment and tomato-growing practices that reduce disease pressures while increasing water conservation, her research includes abiotic plant stressors like wind, cold, heat, drought, and soil compaction.
She writes a weekly gardening column, Southwest Yard & Garden. Readers can access the column archives and other resources at https://desertblooms.nmsu.edu. Find her on social media @NMdesertblooms.
This presentation is the third in “Growing Together,” a gardening and seed saving series, organized by Los Alamos History Museum, Los Alamos Public Library System, and PEEC. Learn more HERE about the upcoming events in the series.
