The Seaside Garden Club kicks off their 46th Season on September 8th at the Manchester Community Center with Propagating Perennials Demonstration presented by Joan Butler and Cherry Fenton of Enchanted Gardens (http://www.enchantedgardensdesign.com/). Social time begins at 7:00 pm and program starts promptly at 7:30 pm. Light refreshments will be served.
Increase your perennial collection, replace mature plants, grow varieties that may not be offered for sale, and even produce new hybrids! Learn different propagation skills including growing from seed, cuttings, and divisions of a wide range of perennials in this combination lecture and demonstration.This is a perfect time of year to propagate your perennials and what better way to learn than to have experts show you how!
Joan Butler, lecturer, has been an enthusiastic gardener for over 30 years, and believes gardens should invite you to linger in the world outside your door. Her gardens have been included on several garden tours, and feature exciting plant combinations, dramatic horticultural specimens, and collections of hosta, heuchera and epimedium. Joan has worked as a horticulturalist at Weston Nurseries, and is the immediate past Chairman of the Massachusetts Landscape Design Council. She is also an accredited Flower Show Judge, and was Chairman of the floral design Division I competition at the Boston Flower and Garden Show 2014-2015.
