SPOONER– The Spooner Agriculture Research Station Teaching and Display Garden will host visitors for a workshop on cut flower gardens and arrangements on Thursday, Aug. 29, starting at 6 p.m.
The garden session will start at the garden with tips on a few outstanding plant selections to grow for cut flowers, including dahlias and annuals. The session will then move to the Research Station for an in-depth workshop on tips and tricks of the art of flower arranging using both perennial and seasonal flowers from the garden.
This year’s theme “Re-use, recycle, and re-imagine,” comes from the All-America Selections. The displays have been created with that theme in mind. The Teaching and Display Garden is one of eight in Wisconsin that display vegetable and flower varieties that have been awarded the designation as an outstanding cultivar.
The North Country Master Gardener Volunteers website, northcountrymgv.org, has more info on the garden, upcoming events, and blog posts.
The last program of the season at the garden will be on September 7 at 10 a.m. and will focus on seed saving, fall rejuvenation, bulb storage, winter sown garlic planting, spring bulbs, and what was learned during this garden season.
Attendees can bring along their own lawn chair for the Meet Me in the Garden Seminar. The session is free and open to the public and will be held rain or shine. In case of inclement weather, the program will be held at the Station Building at 1035 E Maple St. (Hwy 70). The garden is at 780 Orchard Ln., 1.5 miles east of Spooner on Hwy. 70 or a half-mile west of the Hwy. 70/53 interchange.
