2018 Master Gardener Native Plant Workshop

Interested in using native plants in your landscape?

There are many wonderful reasons to use PNW natives: they are often long-lived and don’t need maintenance, they provide year-round color and garden interest, they can be used to stabilize hillsides and prevent erosion, and some are drought and heat tolerant, helpful in a warming climate. And they’re a “welcome mat” for wildlife, providing food and homes for beneficial insects, amphibians, birds and mammals.

Join botanist, native plant enthusiast, and Master Gardener Jane Wentworth for an introduction to native plants. Jane will discuss how to plant bare rootstock and care for your new garden additions in their important first year, and will provide an in-depth review of plants offered in the 2018 Master Gardener Native Plant Sale.

Pre-order your plants for the best selection. Order at the Workshop or online. Plant descriptions and the online order form are located on the Master Gardener website.

Quantities are limited and they do sell out before the sale on March 24th.

The WSU Master Gardener Program is a nationally recognized program that trains volunteers to serve their communities through horticultural education and outreach. Once volunteers receive training, they provide research-based, educational information to the public on vegetable and fruit gardening, native plants, lawn and landscape maintenance, composting, plant problem diagnosis, pest control, and many other concerns.
