Japanese Maples make great additions to your landscape because they come in an array of sizes and leaf colors.
Full sun to part shade in well-drained soil will keep them happy. On some varieties, leaves can change color up to three times during the growing season - spring, summer and fall. Plants are long-lived and only get better with age.

Boxed and bagged, many are even certified organic! Just think, this year you could be harvesting farm fresh potatoes from your own garden.
Rhododendrons, the gems of the woodland garden, they bring riots of color to the spring and early summer garden.
This spring, we have a great selection to suit your needs. Given protection from deer, part shade and well-drained soil, they'll settle-in happily for decades. If you prefer natives, we will have a couple local evergreen species and plenty of our deciduous native azaleas to add fragrance and wildlife benefit to your garden.

In white, red, yellow, maroon and pink, these blooms are larger than garden peonies and put on quite a show in mid to late May. Unlike garden peonies, tree peonies are small shrubs, so they do not require staking.
They will average around 3 foot tall although given time, they can grow larger. These plants are easy to grow, hard to find, and simply beautiful in bloom and out!

Did you know that before most fertilizer can be taken up by a rose, the fertilizer must be acted upon by soil microbes? What are these microbes, where do they live, where can we get them, and what can we do to help them help us? Kevin Johnson of Natural Alternatives will speak to us about soil, soil health, and microbial action. Learn how to increase the beneficial microbes in our soil and to so in an organic or natural process. Hope to see you there!

All About Two Rarely Grown Terrarium Plants: Gasteranthus & Gesneria
Date: Sunday, April 19, 10:30 am
Two rarely seen or grown genera of Gesneriads are the Gesneria and the Gasteranthus. Jim Roberts will talk about how to grow and propagate them. They really aren’t hard, and given the right conditions can be very floriferous with less care than almost any other plant you grow. Terrarium culture takes all the guesswork out of supplying the right conditions. For more information on the Gesneriad Society and its events, visit www.nationalcapitalgesneriads.org.
