Feb 2, 2019

What better way to turn dreams into action than the February meeting with Deborah Trickett of "The Captured Garden." Deborah is an award winning container designer and works with clients throughout New England.

She will speak on “Tips, Tricks and Trade Secrets

From The Captured Garden Website:

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? 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?

Whether you are a floral designer, master gardener or someone who just likes getting her hands in the dirt you will learn something new.
