Gardening guru featured speaker at Muskoka Parry Sound Master Gardeners’ annual fundraising evening. 

Gardening afficionados flocked to Faith Baptist Church last Thursday to hear words of wisdom from horticulturist and radio personality Ed Lawrence. For the last 24 years, Lawrence has been the highly popular and award-winning gardening expert on CBC radio’s Monday noon phone-in. He is well respected in the field of horticulture for his down-to-earth, practical advice and environmentally friendly solutions to gardening problems.

Following his presentation Lawrence opened the floor to an hour of questions. One perennial question that is raised every year is how to keep deer out of gardens. Lawrence said home-grown remedies are only good for a week or two and he recommended a new product called Plantskydd. If applied as per directions only one application a year is required, he said.

The annual event is a fundraiser for the Muskoka Parry Sound Master Gardeners, which is a non-profit organization and is self-funded. The organization belongs to Master Gardeners Ontario Inc. and helps master gardeners in training pay for their education.
