Azusa, California – Now is the perfect time to refresh the garden, preparing for a summer season of enjoyment. Monrovia is offering two new ways to draw inspiration for creating the color-filled garden of your dreams all while taking care of yourself, too.

Monrovia’s chief marketing officer, Katie Tamony, and plant hunter, Georgia Clay, talk plants, trends, and tips for garden fitness in the latest on-demand webinar – Refresh Your Garden. The two experts are joined by Madeline Hooper, horticulturalist and creator of the PBS television show GardenFit.

“Summer brings its own set of tasks and trends to the garden,” Tamony said. “Our discussion is all about extending the enjoyment our gardens offer, from welcoming front yard ideas that encourage connections and conversations, to long-lasting containers in happy summer colors. We also share ways to take care of our most important garden tool – ourselves!”
