2018 Brunswick County Newcomers Packet
The Brunswick County Newcomers Packet has just been refreshed and provides our residents with a wealth of information about plants that we suggest for our Zone 8A. It is a comprehensive resource for those new to gardening –it is meant to serve as a starting point as you select plants that will grow and thrive in our coastal environment. In this packet, you will find a wide variety of selections—from annuals and perennials, to large trees, to native plants—from which to choose.
The Brunswick County Extension Horticulture Staff and the Extension Master Gardener Volunteers are here for you, to help make the transition to gardening in a subtropical environment a little easier. We provide non-biased, research-based information to help improve the lives (and gardens) of our residents.
