10 a.m. – Bulbs: Outdoors and In

Ward’s staff Claire Ward and Linda Olszewski will start with the basic overview of types of spring bulbs including unusual choices and their planting. Then at 10:30 a.m., they continue with strategies for creating potted indoor displays of forced bulbs to enjoy in January or February while winter winds blow. Earlier class date this year means you'll have plenty of time to force those bulbs! Come for the whole session or join about half way through – as suits your gardening confidence!

10 a.m. – Fall Garden Problem-solving

Ward’s Staff horticulturists -- Erin Benken, Morgan Gasperini and Dexter Mason – team up in a concentrated information session ready to discuss (and solve!) all your fall gardening questions.
They’ll be ready to answer which perennials to divide, what’s okay to plant now, how you can protect your landscape from winter pests and more! No question is too silly. Customers may also submit questions in advance via the Ward’s website.
