Garden Design with Native Plants
Deborah Horn of Artemis Gardens
Saturday, March 30, 11 A.M. – 12:30 P.M.

Garden designer Deborah Horn will give a multimedia presentation leading you through the process of applying garden design principles to using our native plants. She’ll start with a sample questionnaire for determining your preferences and goals and evaluating your site (do you like best to watch birds through your window, or to sip your Sunday-morning latte in that one spot that catches the morning sun?) and take you through the basics of designing a garden plan. Then she’ll show you slides and samples of native plants well-adapted for garden use. Finally, she’ll apply garden design principles to using native plants and show examples of design motifs and concepts (and mature gardens) that exploit their potential.

Natural and Organic Plant Care: In-Store Q/A
Donna Nelson of Dr. Earth
Saturday, March 30, 1 P.M. – 4 P.M.

Healthy, vigorously-growing plants are less troubled by pests and disease, and healthy plants start with fertile soil bursting with life. Proper fertilizing can stop many problems before they start, and allow less-toxic solutions for problems that do occur. Dr. Earth is the company that pioneered making probiotic organic fertilizers for homeowner use (adding beneficial microorganisms to fertilizers to increase your fertilizer’s effectiveness and your plants’ health), and they also make a line of “people and pet safe” 100% organic sprays for pest and disease control. Donna Nelson has over a dozen years’ experience in the nursery industry helping homeowners find solutions to their gardening problems. Natural lawn care, organic vegetable and fruit growing, getting your roses and flowerbeds to bloom exuberantly—bring your questions and concerns. Donna will help you find natural, effective methods to maximize the health of your soil, your plants, and you!
