March 21, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
Many of us have heard that putting a penny in the water will keep our tulips more upright, cutting flowers on an angle helps them draw up more water, and even that cayenne pepper can keep the deer and bunnies away. But did you know putting dahlia stems in boiling water can help them last longer? Did you know your morning cup can help deter slugs? Do you know how to guarantee the biggest blooms on your peonies? Do you know how a slinky can keep squirrels away from your bird feeder?
Join Deborah Trickett, owner of The Captured Garden for a PowerPoint presentation as she shares over 100 tips, tricks and trade secrets. Whether you are a floral designer, master gardener or someone who just likes getting her hands in the dirt you will learn something new. Even why denture cleaner may become your new best friend!
