As we look to our fall and winter planting and planning windows, this week Cultivating Place is back in conversation with Uli Lorimer, native plantsman and Director of Horticulture at the Native Plant Trust. His new book, "The Northeast Native Plant Primer: 235 Plants for an Earth Friendly Garden," is a great resource no matter where you garden. Join us!
