Do you want to create a welcoming habitat for people, pollinators, and birds, be it with one container, a small plot, or a large property? Do you want to learn how to select, propagate, and place just the right plants, native and otherwise, to make that happen? Come spend the morning with Susan Ashley and Keeyla Meadows, lifelong friends who both draw on formal arts training in their Bay Area garden businesses that have been thriving for over 40 years.
Master grower Susan Ashley will show participants how to take cuttings, sow seed, transplant young plants into 4" containers, and grow them until they are ready to be incorporated into the garden. She will share the tips and techniques for successful propagation she’s developed in over four decades of professional expertise. When essentially making your own plants like this, large quantities and even the rarest varieties are within reach for all gardeners.
Landscape designer and artist Keeyla Meadows will introduce color principles, design ideas, and beautiful, habitat-friendly varieties to guide you in making plant selections for foliage and flowers. She will suggest plant combinations for sun and shade and demonstrate specific techniques for creating memorable containers. One of Keeyla’s tricks for simply and economically keeping colors fresh through the seasons is to change out container plantings.
