Design With Summer Bulbs

Spring is the time to plant summer bulbs.

Bulbs need time to grow roots that will support and nourish the plant. The better the soil conditions and bulb quality, the bigger and better the blossom and leaves.

Elise will share best methods for the planting and care of various summer bulbs. Design guidelines for color combinations and bloom times will help in your creations.  Don't miss out on the summer bulbs that can add color, texture and even a touch of the exotic to your garden.

The second half of the class will be hands on.

Bring your favorite pot or purchase a new one. We'll supply the potting soil! Elise can help you choose a combination of bulbs and accent plants. She will guide you step by step for some summer bulb magic.

Not ready to do a large planter? Take this opportunity to get begonias started inside while waiting to transplant them in warmer weather.

Seed Starting Workshop 2015

Some seeds are best started indoors at this time of year. By the time the outside temperatures are warm enough for planting, your seedlings will have that headstart on their production.

Andrea from Territorial Seeds, a local company, will talk about which seeds should be started now for our area.

 

She will show you which supplies are best used and how to do it. Yes, she will get her hands in the dirt while sharing secrets for getting your seeds off to a great start.

Germination issues, space saving ideas, and light and watering guidelines will be yours.

No large greenhouse required!

Come learn how to site and set up your own mason bee house. Find out which plants best attract these hard workers that pay their rent by pollinating your spring blooming fruits and vegetables.

Be prepared to be amazed and intrigued by these live and local mason bees.
