"Native Splendor in the Garden" Class Tomorrow At Center For Urban Horticulture

 UW Botanic Gardens: Native Splendor in the Garden

UW Botanic Gardens’ Center for Urban Horticulture (3501 NE 41st Street) is having a free class tonight from 6:30-8:30pm called "Native Splendor in the Garden." 

The information says:

Many of our native plants have very ornamental branch structures, flowers, leaves, and berries, making them ideal for incorporating into an established landscape or using as the foundation for a new garden.  
Native plants are already adapted to our wet winter/dry summer climate and acidic soils, and do not require much fertilizer or supplemental water once established. Adding native plants to your landscape is a great way to increase its year-round beauty without increasing the amount of time and resources you use to maintain it. 
This class will provide you with tips for determining which native plants will fit best into your landscape, which plants will also attract birds and beneficial insects to provide natural pest control in your garden, and planting methods for bare-root or containerized natives.

The cost is $20 and Registration is Online, or by phone at 206-685-8033.
