Green Mulching With Sedge Plugs
how to use plugs to create a living mulch composed of sedge
Tired of annual wood mulch applications? Tired of spending $15-20 for a single, one-gallon plant -- and then having to dig it into heavy clay soil?
Plugs not only provide more bang for you buck, but establish quickly while being easier to install. We'll explore how to emulate nature by using a matrix of various sedge species (for sun and shade) from which flowers will emerge in every season.
We'll also take a close look at sourcing plugs, the best tools to dig them in with, how to water them during establishment, and various other management issues specific to using plugs and sedge in a designed garden.

"I liked how he connected what we do in our gardens to the overall health of our ecosystem. He provided facts I hadn't heard before and I walked away from the presentation inspired to make changes."
"Wonderful! Combination of knowledge, wit, and alacrity of presentation.... So interested in his topic that he made me interested!"
"He did an outstanding job bridging practical gardening with the philosophy behind why we need native plants in our landscapes. He had great photos, statistics, and personal stories."
