We hate to be the bearer of cold news, but winter is slowly but surely on its way. One of the most frustrating parts of winter– besides the frigid temperatures– is the lack of colour around your yard. Your landscape turns from all the colours of the rainbow to the black, grey, and white of winter (and of course that dead-grass brown once the Lethbridge chinooks strike). One way you can bring back some colour to your property is through plants and flowers inside your home.
Bulb Planting Workshop
On Tuesday, Sept. 12, Dr. Joanna Fraser is hosting a workshop on how to “trick” your bulbs into flowering–even through the winter months. Bring back those lovely colours of spring and summer in those bitter cold months.
This workshop will help you discover a number of important factors to get your bulbs on their way to flowering through:
- Proper bulb selection
- Soil preparation
- Suitable bulb sites
This workshop is open to all those interested in plants and in bringing some colour and vive back into their house through those harsh and dreary winter months. Space is limited so be sure to call 403-320-3064 to reserve your spot at this garden workshop today. The cost is $15 dollars per person.
Prepared For Winter
Get a head start and get prepared for the dreariness of winter before it encapsulates the city of Lethbridge in its white and grey wake. Discovering the secrets to flowering bulbs will give your spirits a boost– especially after the hard-hitting post-Christmas blues. The knowledge this garden workshop will give you has great potential to improve your mood this winter, and also benefit the air you breathe, as we all know how healthy extra plants make the air around us. Be sure to look for the bulbs that have the best fragrance, to give your senses– and your spirit– an extra little boost of joy!
