This Week Center For Urban Horticulture Classes

Nearby Center for Urban Horticulture (3501 NE 41st Street) is having several classes this week: 

Native Plants 101: Gardening with Native Ephemerals & Understory Plants - Monday 6:30 – 8pm

Native Plants 101: Gardening with Native Ephemerals & Understory Plants
Find out what native Puget Sound plants are first to grow and flower in the spring and how to incorporate them into your garden!  This class will cover some of the native blooming flowers and plants that you can grow in your shady garden spot that will brighten up your yard early in the year, from Bleeding Heart to native Trillium and Vanilla Leaf.  Taught by Anna Carragee and Joel Bidnick

Gardening with the Seasons: THURSDAY, 7 – 8:30PM
Gardening with the Seasons: Winter
Though it seems there isn't much to do in the garden over winter, dormant season tasks can set the stage for a good gardening year.  When weather keeps us indoors, we can plan ahead for tasks and garden changes to be done in the months ahead. When the weather is nice enough to spend time outdoors, it can be amazing how much we can actually take care of now. This session will cover dormant season pruning and transplanting for specific plant types, winter weeding and garden care, best tools and practices, and planning ahead for the new growing season.
