The Seal Rock Garden Club invites the public to a free program on plant propagation. To answer the question as to whether a gardener have too many plants, Michele Thompson, third generation nursery grower and owner of Thompson's Nursery in Waldport will respond with a presentation on how to grow a variety of plants through practical propagation methods.
With more than 50 years of combined family history of growing and hybridizing stock, and a reputation for specialization in large leaf rhododendrons, Thompson knows a thing or two about gardening and in particular, coastal gardening. In addition to popular market offerings available at most nurseries, she propagates plants for her customers that are not readily available through wholesale sources. She will discuss practical techniques or tools for the home gardener to know and have on hand to grow what they want well in advance of these plants broad market release and availability. There will be a selection of plants for purchase after the program.
The program, “Practical Propagation for the Home Gardener,” is on Wednesday, March 20, at the Seal Rock Garden Clubhouse, 10377 NW Rand St., Seal Rock (next to the old Seal Rock Fire Department). It begins at 11 a.m., with a business meeting and light lunch to follow. All are welcome to attend.
The Seal Rock Garden Club is a 70-year-plus community, nonprofit organization established to encourage interest and activity in gardening, conservation and support of local civic gardening projects.
