Come join the Blue Ridge Chapter for a summer tour of the Daniel Boone Native Gardens and lots of good info on growing native plants in your own home landscape! Due to safety concerns associated with the recent surge in Covid-19 cases in North Carolina, we will not be meeting in person at the Gardens this year but instead will be holding a virtual tour on Zoom and have a number of experts on call to answer your native plant gardening questions. You are welcome to join from your home or walk the Gardens on your own and zoom in from your cell phone while walking around. The Gardens are located at at 651 Horn in the West Drive.
