Events, Workshops & Activities 2014
WORKSHOP - Make a Layered Bulb Garden w/ Carol Allen
Date: September 27
Time: 11am & again at 2pm
Watching tulips, daffodils and other bulbs POP out in the spring makes the season cheery and is so satisfying to the gardener. In this class you will plant a layered container garden with spring blooming bulbs and top it off with pansies for fall color. You will receive instructions on how to care for it so that next spring you can enjoy the fruits of your labor as the container begins a succession of blooming.
Plus.....a BIG Raffle & Craft Beer Tasting to benefit the Beltsville Rotary, farm fresh apples, a McCutcheon's Salsa Tasting, and the Women's Community Club of Beltsville with Cornbread (and Tums - just in case).
