It’s always dangerous to leave in the summer, and return to a mass of weeds. But sometimes there are surprises hidden in the weeds! I just came home to these. No root maggots! Hooray.
Willow Garden Club is honored to host Dan Hinkley, the well-known American horticulturalist, award-winning author, plant explorer, and lecturer. He is best known for establishing Heronwood Nursery in Kingston, Washington, and Windcliff, on the Kitsap Peninsula. For the past twenty-five years he has traveled to all corners of the world searching out rare plants that would be suitable new introductions for the temperate climate found in the Northwest. Dan will share stories from his most recent adventure searching for rare plants in China, Vietnam, and Myanmar. He will also highlight examples of plants found on his trip, some of which could be grown in Alaska’s garden zones. This is a presentation that every gardener in Alaska will enjoy.
Saturday, August 1, 2015 from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM (AKDT) at Willow Community Center, Mile 69.5 Parks Hwy.
