LFP Garden Club Tuesday with Karen Chapman: Foliage First

Saturday, March 11, 2017

Lake Forest Park Garden Club's monthly meeting is March 14th at LFP Town Center, Upper Mall level Stage area. Ballinger Way NE and Bothell Way NE.

General meeting starts at 9:15am and the speaker starts at 10:30am after coffee and treats. All are welcome to attend.

The speaker will be Karen Chapman: “Foliage First: Learn 3 easy steps to transform your gardens from frumpy to fabulous.”

Create a foliage-driven garden that dazzles! The beauty of flowers is seductive, but flowers, by their fleeting nature, are a fickle base to provide long-lasting gardens with year-round interest. Tackle this problem with the advice in Gardening with Foliage First.

Learn how to first build a framework of foliage and then layer in flowers and other artistic elements to add the finishing touches.

This simple, recipe-style approach to garden design features 127 combinations for all seasons and both sunny and shady gardens that will work for a variety of climates and garden challenges, including deer, dry shade, and more.

Born in England, Karen moved to the Pacific NW in 1996 and joined Molbak’s Garden and Home as a garden plant specialist before establishing Le Jardinet in 2006.

Whilst specializing in custom container gardens, Karen also extends that vision to design challenging smaller landscapes.

She is co-author of the award winning book “Fine Foliage” and is introducing her newest book “Gardening with Foliage First”. Both books will be available for purchase at the meeting.
