Food is a wondrous life-giving thing. However, you may be surprised about how many parts of a plant we humans are actual consuming. You will see a short pictorial lecture on leaves, tubers, roots, stems, flowers, fruit, seeds, and more - all botanically related back to what we are actually eating on our dinner plate.

The drought this summer has been very tough on our plants, trees, lawns, and gardens. Fungus, mildew, insect infestations, dry lumpy soil, and lawns you would rather not look at!

Bill, our guest designer, will share his own adventures in taking old “junk” from lumber, and metal parts and creating object d’art and focal points. Since the City of Winnipeg’s “Giveaway Weekend” is the previous weekend, bring in a found object and Bill will facilitate an imagination session with your fellow participants! Feel free to bring in some extra “pieces” for trading!

1:00 - 1:45 FLOWERS IN THE SHADE – Tammy Jensen
One of the most common design questions I get is “What will grow in a shady spot that blooms?” I will be going over all the shrubs and perennials we carry for the shade that does flower! Bring sketches, pictures, or measurements of the shady area you want to plant in. At the end of the seminar we can help you design a small shade garden, or help you find the right shade perennial for a particular location.

What is new and exciting this year? How do I plant? What do I need to do to have beautiful tulips and bulbs in the spring? Karl will take you step by step through everything you need to know! Special discount on bulbs will be given to all who attend!
