Ornamentals and Native Plants for the Coast
As rhododendrons, elderberries and magnolias burst into bloom, the fifth spring Round Table program, “Ornamentals and Native Plants for the Coast” will celebrate our early spring weather. The Round Table takes place from 10:00 a.m. until noon on Thursday, April 9, at the Lincoln City Campus of the OR Coast Community College.
Deborah Gallie, co-owner of Blake’s Nursery in Gleneden Beach, and her son, Nathan, the Nursery’s horticulturist, will lead this Round Table discussion. The program will feature native and ornamental landscape plant selections for successful gardening along our cool and windy coast. The Blake Nursery family will provide knowledgeable design, planting and growing advice and respond to all manner of gardening questions.
With an inspiring assortment of native and ornamental plants that thrive in our area, and exciting ideas on how to use them, this program promises to expand your landscaping imagination and horticultural understanding.
The “Ornamentals and Native Plants for the Coast” Round Table is free to all, but please call the OSU Extension Office at 541-574-6534 ext. 57410, to ensure adequate seating and materials.
“Ornamentals and Native Plants for the Coast ” is the fifth in this year’s series of eleven free Master Gardener Round Tables. 2015 is the fourth year that the Lincoln County Master Gardeners have sponsored this popular event for gardeners and the general public.
