About this event

In this one-hour presentation author Robert Pavlis will help you answer important questions like do oaks really make tap roots, do sunflowers really follow the sun and why do picked dandelions continue to make seed? He will even show you a plant in tears.

Learn the basic biology of how plants grow, and become a gardener with the confidence to problem-solve for optimized plant health and productivity.
