There’s room to grow

Kathleen Corrigan, of West Lebanon, waters the shade tolerant perennials just planted in a garden she designed at Kilton Library in West Lebanon, N.H., on Tuesday, May 23, 2023. “It’s bothered me for a long time that things we tried didn’t work,” said Corrigan who served on a design committee for the library and saw that only the day lilies planted in the shady, west facing garden thrived. She said she’s trying to make the plot, “kind of an oasis.” While working she has been approached by bus-riders at the busy hub for Advance Transit who have shared stories about their gardening experiences. “It’s an eye opener for me too, because I never spent much time on Main Street,” she said.
