    Lorraine Ballato presents, “Success with Hydrangeas”

    No garden is complete without this queen of American shrubs. From 18-inch, container-sized, reblooming beauties to 8-foot explosions of multicolored zing, there is a hydrangeas for every garden. Through slides and discussion, you will learn all about hydrangeas, including the many recent introductions that have hit the market, their proper care and the hardy cultivars that perform well despite over-enthusiastic pruning and finicky weather. You will leave this talk never again to ask the question, “Why doesn’t my hydrangea bloom?”

    As a professional horticulturist, Lorraine has been a guest on numerous gardening radio programs from Alaska to Connecticut. She speaks at regional symposiums, flower shows, to civic groups and garden clubs, creating talks that are both instructive and highly entertaining on a broad range of subjects tailored to each audience.
