The first session of the series is titled "Some Like it Hot: Plants for Hot, Dry Areas." The program will be offered at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 20, via teleconference at the McHenry County Extension office, 1102 McConnell Road, Woodstock.

Landscapes often include challenging sites where the heat is high and the water is dry. Areas next to driveways or near south facing buildings can frustrate even the most seasoned gardener. Before you consider giving up on plants and ordering asphalt, discover the diversity of plants that thrive in hot, dry sites.

Other topics in the fall series include "Winter Wise Your Landscape: Knowledge to Prevent Costly Mistakes," set for Sept. 5; "Pollinator Plants" on Sept. 17; and "What's Trending Now in Landscape Design" Oct. 3.

Cost per session is $5; advance registration is required. Register online at web.extension.illinois.edu/lm.
