Conversations on Nature
August 19, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
As we progress through summer, the Master Gardener Foundation of Spokane County will offer two more entertaining and educational events for your viewing pleasure. The Covid restrictions continue to impact our ability to provide in-person events so we will make the best of the circumstances and continue online.
The Summer and Fall sessions of the 2021 Conversations On Nature series will feature experienced gardeners speaking on the general topic of nurturing your gardens throughout the season. In August our speaker will discuss how to best add ornamental grasses to your garden and how to save and preserve blooms for later decorative use. Our final session in October will be a live, hands-on event making a table decoration using dried florals, natural components, and succulents to liven up your home decor. We’re hoping you will enjoy this session as a fun way to wrap up the growing season!
Please join us as we spend time together making our gardens our own!
Ornamental Grasses for the Pacific Northwest presented by Marilyn Lloyd
There are many ornamental grasses that are adaptable to the Inland Northwest and take little effort to grow. A large variety of grasses do grow well in our area. In addition to decorative uses, some add fall and winter interest to our landscape. Another advantage of ornamental grasses is that many are pest and animal resistant. Photographs of some of the grasses grown locally will be included. This presentation will show that there are grasses for almost any landscape situation.
Harvesting and Preserving Florals From Your Garden presented by Beth Mort
Learn about some favorite flower varieties in our area that are especially good for drying and preserving. We will share growing and harvesting tips in addition to techniques to preserve blooms for dried flower crafts.
