October 27: Denise Hodgins, “Caring for Indoor Plants”

Denise is a former college instructor who particularly enjoys the opportunity to continue teaching through being a Garden Coach. Many homeowners are eager to learn more about their own gardens and how to care for them as well as how to take them to the next level. As a Garden Coach and Designer she has over 30 years of design experience and has had the opportunity to work in many areas within the horticultural industry. She has done Historical Landscaping;
has been the Head Gardener at Rosebank in Lambeth, Ontario; has been involved with greenhouse plant production; and has spent many years on residential and commercial landscape crews both in northern Ontario and in London, Ontario.

Denise is a graduate of Landscape Design at Fanshawe College, and holds a Diploma in Horticulture from the University of Guelph. She is a certified Rose and Flower judge.

Denise will be speaking to us about caring for indoor plants. There are two main factors that people get wrong in taking care of their house plants: water and light. With tropical house plants, it is a good idea for us to imagine their natural environment and try to recreate it. What most people do wrong is give their house plants too much water and too little light. Tune in virtually to learn all about it!
