Do you have a lucky or an unlucky feeling while tending your flower beds?

Folklore and tales abound about gardening. It is said that that folklore often has a basis in fact, as odd as some might seem at first blush.

Planting a single garlic clove next to your roses, for instance, was thought to protect them from flying insects, especially pesky aphids. Then there are garden superstitions, from lucky four-leaf clovers to moon phase planting.

Enjoy a lively talk by gardener Ellen Azotea at Kingwood Center Gardens later this month as she sorts out truth from fiction regarding superstitions and beliefs surrounding plants and gardening.

Garden Superstitions” takes place on July 30 from 5 PM to 6 PM at the Roost Hall at Kingwood. Registration is required and can be done here.

The cost is $5 for members and $10 for non-members.

As a reminder, the remainder of the Live on the Lawn concerts at Kingwood Center are cancelled for this season.
