The UC Master Gardeners of Napa County invite the community to join them for a public gardening workshop, “Flowers & Foliage for the House”. This workshop will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2019, from 9:30 am to 11:30 pm at the UCCE Meeting Room, 1710 Soscol Avenue, Napa.
Something changes when you put fresh flowers or greenery in a room. In the great houses of Europe, gardens were planned so that throughout the year there would be “flowers for the house.” Learn how to plan your garden to be able to bring in the joy of cut flowers and foliage year round. This workshop will cover choosing and planting annuals and perennials that work well for cutting, starting seeds, preparing your soil, direct sowing seeds, selecting pollinator friendly flowers, and some principles of flower arranging. Participants will take home seeds and flower starts.
Registration is preferred, space is limited. Fees are non-refundable and non-transferable unless class is cancelled. There is a charge of $5/person.
