We are excited to announce our next class!
"Bulb Class" with Margaret Cherry, bulb expert from Abbott IPCO.
Margaret has 30+ years of experience, having worked in many areas of the nursery industry. Her longest tenure was with Cornelius Nurseries in Houston, but her "visibility" increased during her years as a color specialist for a commercial landscaper. Margaret has designed and planted beds using over 250,000 flats of annuals a year, with extensive use of bulbs, perennials, and colorful foliage plants. Many of the color care tags on plants from Hines & Turkey Creek Farms were written by Margaret. She has also been a contributor to The Garden Book for Houston, 4th & 5th edition. In recent years, she has been working with Mercer Arboretum, LSU, & local growers to identify the best varieties of bulbs & plants for our area, & introduce them to the gardening public. Margaret remains her own best test gardener, & won't recommend until she has witnessed a plants' success herself.
This 1.5 hour class will include instruction on planting bulbs in beds and in containers. You will also learn hands-on how to plant your bulb and force bloom them in containers for the holidays. You get to plant your own bulbs in a planter and take them home!
We will provide all supplies including container, bulbs, pea gravel, charcoal & gloves. Refreshments will be provided. The class fee is $40.00.
