Dr. Jeff Gillman

The Truth About Garden Remedies

There are all kinds of garden gurus out there recommending home remedies for garden problems, but which of them work and which are a waste of time and money? Learn about the ones that work, the ones that don't, and why, presented by Dr. Jeff Gillman.

After completing an M.S. in Entomology and Ph.D. in Horticulture at the University of Georgia, Gillman became an associate professor in horticultural science at the University of Minnesota. His research program focuses on applied nursery and landscape issues with particular attention to the root health of trees and shrubs. His books include The Truth About Garden Remedies, The Truth About Organic Gardening, and How Trees Die. A book-signing will follow the lecture.

The Philip and Elkin Alston Lecture Series is made possible by the generous support of the Charles Loridans Foundation. Admission to the lecture is free, and no reservations are required.
