You can come without sharing in the gift exchange, so don’t avoid us if this is not your thing.

HPSW: Second Propagation Workshop Nov 12th, 10am to 3pm

images-2The Hardy Plant Society of Washington invites you to the 2nd offering of our popular autumn perennials propagation workshop. 

Saturday November 12th 10-3 in the Shoreline area.

Learn tricks of the trade from plant expert Bob Lilly. Overview of proper preparation begins promptly at 10am. Then we dive into division basics of key perennial types — no admittance after 11am. 

The basics will include dividing perennials with a variety of root structures: Asters divaricata & ‘The Prince’, Crocosmia, Geranium (Cranesbill), Hosta, Iris ‘Gerald Darby’, oriental lilies, Oxalis oregana, Trachystemon orientalis and more. 

We will also do hands-on winter prep on our perennials, techniques which can be used to help your garden thrive. Bulb planting in pots and methods. Lots of extras to take home and pot up or plant out in your own garden! 

Bring one or two questions on separate pieces of paper to try to stump us. Bring a sack lunch which will be inside. We will have apples to sample. Dress for weather although we will be under cover as much as possible. 

Email us at pr@hardyplantsocietywa.org to reserve your space; space is limited.  Workshop to be held in Shoreline (details will be emailed to participants).

$20 non-members, $10 members. Cash/check collected at class.
