Getting to Know Perennial Maintenance

Saturday, February 23 – 11:00 am 

Speaker: Laura Deeter – Professor – Horticulture Technologies; Program Coordinator: Landscape Horticulture and Horticulture Science; Ohio State ATI

Magazines, internet pictures, and books all portray these perfectly behaved ‘babies’. Then we get them in our personal garden and the plants simply refuse to behave! They get up late, refuse to stand up straight, bully their siblings, and in general don’t look at all like the pictures. Learn tips, tricks and techniques for helping your perennial babies be on their best behavior, so you, too, can be a fantastic perennial parent! Approximate length: 90 minutes

This seminar is now FULL.  No more registrations accepted.

Marvelous Magnolias

Saturday, March 2 – 11:00 am 

Speaker: Tom Dayton – Dayton Nurseries, Inc., owner

With more than 200 species, Magnolias are one of the most popular landscape plants in the whole world and for good reason. This diverse group of trees vary in leaf shape and plant form, including both glossy evergreen and deciduous types. Their bloom ranges from star to saucer-shaped in a scent reminiscent of a French perfume.  And, plus, they are not liked by pesky deer. Join Tom Dayton on a tour through this group with a bit of history, culture, growth habits, planting and pruning techniques plus a photo gallery of the most common species and cultivars. Approximate length: 90 minutes
