Bonsai Basics, Robert Cho of Asia Pacific Gardening

Let Robert Cho introduce you to the wonderful art of bonsai. These living sculptures are surprisingly easy to create or maintain once you master a few basic techniques and learn how to work with your tree’s natural growth habits. Robert will cover what you need to know to create and care for your bonsai. Sky Nursery 18528 Aurora Ave. N. Shoreline, WA 98133 206-546-4851

Carnivorous Plants, Jerry Addington of Courting Frogs

Pitcher plants that lure unsuspecting insects to their doom… Venus flytraps that snap jaws shut on unwary flies… sundews sparkling innocently in the sunlight, until a whitefly or midge lands…. There are few plants more spooky or fascinating than the carnivores, and our grower, Jerry Addington of Courting Frogs Nursery, is delighted to introduce you to them. Sky Nursery 18528 Aurora Ave. N.
