Fruit Tree Selection, Pruning, and Care - Charlie Shull

Hungry for summer?  You can grow apples, pears, peaches, even figs and persimmons in your own back yard!

Charlie will go over everything the beginning (or not-so-beginning) orchardist needs to know: where to site your trees, the best varieties for western Washington (and for you), how to plant, fertilize, prune your trees, and how to deal with common problems.

After the presentation, Charlie will be available to answer questions. Sky Nursery 18528 Aurora Ave N. Shoreline 98133 206-546-4851

Saturday, January 30th 1:30pm – 3:00pm
Terrariums:  Gardening in Glass - Hannah Dayley

Constructing a terrarium balances art and science.  You’re putting together a tiny low-input ecosystem—a mini desert (open terrarium for succulents and cacti) or rainforest floor (traditional globe type terrarium filled with humidity lovers).

Hannah will first explain the science of terrarium construction:  how to construct the base layers (gravel, charcoal, soil), how to choose plants suitable for your terrarium’s light level and style, how to plant them.

Then she’ll show you the art—how to select plants with complementary forms and colors and how to use decorative rocks, colored sand, and accents to add the finishing touches to your project. Sky Nursery 18528 Aurora Ave N. Shoreline 98133 206-546-4851
