Master Gardeners 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 2019 Master Gardener Native Plant Sale.

Pre-order plants early at the Workshop 
Online pre-ordering opens after the Workshop on January 13th, at the Master Gardeners Foundation website, where there are full descriptions of each plant.

Order early for the best selection. Quantities are limited and many will sell out by the order deadline, March 1.
