|Garden workshop to be held April 23|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
A cutting garden workshop will be held Monday, April 23 at 1 p.m. at Phillips County Event Center in the Ortner room.
Those attending the workshop will learn how a cutting garden would benefit the vegetable garden and learn the best practices for cutting gardens.
The workshop will teach the variety of flowers people have
to choose from for a cutting garden and whether or not to include foliage.
Long blooming perennials can help create beauty and help people decorate indoors. Some types of annuals can enhance bouquets and then be dried to preserve for winter use.
Seeds can be saved from some of the annuals and perennials which gives people the ability to save money toward gardening as well as keeping the plants going.
Participants will learn all the benefits of growing a cutting garden as well as using a cutting garden to enhance the landscape. It is so much more than roses, zinnias, marigolds and hydrangea.
There is a charge for the workshop. Pre-register by Friday, April 20. For questions regarding the workshop, call 854-3616 and speak with Linda Langelo.
