Plants, Bugs and Climate Change ~ Presented by Leslie Gover

Sunday, June 29, 2014 1:00 PM  at Joy Creek Nursery

Image

The last decade has brought a series of unusual insect sightings, some harmful, some just baffling. Come and bring your own pests (in small plastic bags so that we can dispose of them easily) and join the discussion. Leslie, as the integrated pest manager at our nursery, will present her personal observations and those of other specialists in the field.

This class is free and open to the public.

Dress appropriately for the weather.

There is a $10.00 class fee for ‘CEH’ Certification.

Clematis Tour ~ Hosted by Maurice Horn

ImageOver the last two decades, Joy Creek Nursery has been fortunate to be associated with many wonderful clematis hybridizers and collectors. As a result, the nursery garden contains a wide variety of both climbing and herbaceous forms of clematis from many parts of the world. This is an opportunity to learn about many clematis that are rarely if ever seen in the trade.
