Learn the Secrets of the Rochester Hills Public Library’s Garden
(ROCHESTER HILLS- February 10, 2017) The Rochester Hills Public Library is sharing the secrets of how it maintains its beautiful gardens with Volunteer Gardener Chuck Price, March 21 at 7 p.m.
Price is a master gardener and one of the many experts trusted to bring color and diversity to the library’s gardens. At this event, Price will share his knowledge on raising flowers from seed to bring the same variety to your garden.
“Nothing says spring like flowers,” says Price. “And everyone wants to have beautiful flowers. That being said, we often overlook how easy and inexpensive it can be to grow them from seed. My hope is to make it simple for everyone to add excitement back into their flower bed this year”
The discussion will include wildflowers, herbs and domestic flowers that can be grown from seed. Price also plans to share tips regarding soil preparation, seeding, and maintenance as well as sources for seed mixes.
“We are so thankful for our volunteer gardeners. They do a fantastic job and we grateful for all the hard work they invest to make our gardens a staple in this community,” says Community Relations Specialist Amanda Harrison Keighley.
