November 4: OSU Winter Dreams Garden Symposium—check-out the large variety of classes this symposium offers including:
Gardening in a Mediterranean Climate—We don’t live in the Pacific NW and shouldn’t garden like we do. Join Christie Mackison, co-owner of Shooting Star Nursery and landscape designer, as she shows you what a Mediterranean climate can offer and what plants are best suited for our Rogue Valley.
The Beauty and Ease of Ornamental Grasses—taught by Bonni Criswell. Don’t know where to start when it comes to ornamental grasses? There are so many varieties and sizes to choose from, but that’s what makes them so useful. Besides adding texture, movement, and color to the garden, they are also usually deer resistant and many are drought tolerant. Come learn about the best grass options for our area, as we have the most diverse selection of grasses the Rogue Valley has to offer! We will also show you how to care for them, from evergreen to deciduous types.
