Does the idea of having a garden full of fresh blossoms, vines, and branches available to decorate your home or a client’s throughout the year entice you?  If so, this presentation will provide you with the information necessary to plan, manage, and create your own cutting garden.

Russo will give his suggestions on favorite annuals, perennials, shrubs, bulbs, and vines to plant in your own “workhorse” of a garden, intended to provide a continuous bounty of botanical material for your creative floral endeavors. Resources for obtaining seeds, bulbs, and plants will also be provided for starting your own cutting garden.
The DRGC Business Meeting will be held at 8 p.m.
