What to Do in the Garden in October
Sat. October 4, 2014 – 11:00 a.m.
Our monthly seminar on what should be done in the landscape and garden. The weather has settled into the cool and wet season, but frost is not a regular occurrence yet, so October continues to be an ideal time of year to plant trees and shrubs. It's also a good time to take lots of notes on your garden or landscape about what worked and what you'd like to change. Bring your notes with you and we'll try to help decipher them. Bring pictures and samples for our staff to look at during the Q & A portion. This is a regular seminar on the first Saturday of every month so remember to put us on your calendar! Free.*

Pruning Ornamentals with Brian Tsugawa
Sat. October 25, 2014 - 11:00 a.m.
Many of us love Japanese maples and dwarf conifers for the beauty, elegance and strength they bring to the landscape. The Japanese maple exudes elegance in all seasons, with delicate leaves, fine fall color and lovely branch patterns. Dwarf conifers show their powerful structure and quiet beauty during winter. Simple pruning of both types of ornamentals can help maintain and enhance their natural forms. Join Brian Tsugawa as he shows you tips and techniques to get the most from your Japanese maples and dwarf conifers. Free.*
