Dr. Steven Still, Emeritus Professor, The Ohio State University
Most homeowners who know they want to make changes to their landscapes have no idea where to start, what questions to ask, what they don’t know that they need to know, or how to work with a landscape designer or landscape architect. Bobbie will outline her approach used during the initial meeting with the client plus the ensuing discussions about goals, budget, the importance of soil amendment as it relates to successful planting, and phasing of an installation.
Adding shrubs to the mixed border to complement a perennial garden adds year-round interest. Join savvy plantsman, Bill, to look at shrubs and vines that work well when combined with perennials to add seasonal interest.
The hot and dry summers we have experienced, create water usage challenges. In choosing perennials, consider their water requirements and how much water will be guzzled by any given plant. Your perennials will have to learn to drink responsibly; else the horticultural police will take them handcuffed to the compost pile.
Lunch on your own in the food court and other convenient options.
No longer a niche product for specialists and iconoclasts, ornamental grasses have become an expected and respected part of good garden design. Increased interest has spurred new breeding, and vice-versa. More than 100 ornamental grasses are now protected by patents and/or trademarks in the US alone. John will discuss current trends, reliable sellers, and exciting introductions.
This presentation covers a wide range of annual plants – some that may surprise you. Jim will share a plethora of what is possible in seasonal plants. There are more than you may have considered. Some are for cool seasons and others for warm/hot summers. Suggestions include cut flowers for the dining room, for the kids to enjoy in their rooms, and for the border. The possibilities are endless.
When gardeners think about shade gardens, they might think “hosta,” but there are more options for the shaded landscape. Besides a tremendous variety of hostas, there are many other perennials with a palette of textures, flowers, and colorful foliage that thrive in the shade. Dr. Still will discuss many perennials that will provide color in the shade garden.
An awesome day-long seminar on January 14, featuring 6 plant experts.
