Lanai Plants

Great Lanai Plants

Saturday, September 15, 2018 at 10 a.m.  FREE

Instructor:  Vince Molnar, Riverland Nursery Owner

It's wonderful to open our patio doors and spend time relaxing and eating in our screened lanai areas. Are you interested in learning how to create a lush, tropical sanctuary that starts inside the lanai and extends to the exterior garden that surrounds your private, personal space? Vince will discuss great plant options for lanai interiors and how to enhance the lanai experience by extending the tropical ambiance to the exterior surrounding area.

His discussion will include evaluating the area for sun, shade, irrigation, desirable plant height and width; and how to select plants that will be less likely to litter the pool or lanai area with leaves and petals. He will also discuss how to help the plants thrive by using the appropriate fertilizer, care and maintenance.
