On Tuesday April 10th the Lake Forest Park Garden Club will host Madeleine 'Frankie' Dennison talking about "Propagation of all Plants"

Frankie attended Seattle Community College Horticulture classes and is a Master Gardener with Washington State University Agriculture program. She has taught gardening clubs, Northwest Fuchsia Society groups and Botanical gardens in the Northwest for 10 years on topics of bulbs, plants, propagating and dividing, soil biology and pesticides. Through the Master Gardener program she teaches at schools and 4H club programs.

She has been a Greater Seattle Fuchsia Society member for 25 years, and has taught at the NW Flower and Garden show for two years, teaching Fuchsia culture, soils, pests, companion plantings, Perennial Fuchsias, Bonsai, Miniature Gardens, Encliandra and Species cultivation. She has been invited to England twice to speak at the International Fuchsias Convention. Currently Frankie is on the Board of Highline Botanical Garden and President of the NW Fuchsia Society which covers Canada to California.

The Garden Club meets at the LFP Town Center, Stage area on the upper level and located at Bothell Way NE and Ballinger Way NE. The general meeting is from 9:15am to 10am then a break for coffee and cookies, and the speaker starts at 10:30am.

New members are accepted throughout the year and the annual dues are $25. Feel free to come to one to two meetings without having to join. Novice and experienced gardeners are welcomed. We meet September to May and take off the summer months. We do have a picnic and a soiree and most years a bus trip to private gardens and nurseries.
