How to Create a Garden
Presented by Don Wallace
Don is one of our favorite speakers. His talks are always full of practical information and the plants he brings down to sell are always unusual and fabulous. This time he will speak on "Creating a Garden". We love plants and collect plants, but don't always know how to actually create a garden with them. Don will enlighten us. He will focus on smaller sized rhodies and also fragrant ones. Don's Nursery, Singing Tree Gardens in McKinleyville, has a great web site to check out: www.singingtreegardens.com
