All Season Interest in the Garden
Rhododendron growers tend to have exceptionally lovely spring gardens. But what about the rest of the year…….?
There are many ways to have an interesting garden throughout the entire year. Floral colour is usually our first thought, but plant foliage, texture, bark and form can also be delightful. When you combine those features with creative, thoughtful and well-placed hardscaping, then you have an interesting garden for all seasons.
After graduating in landscape design/horticulture, NANCY MOORE was involved in many aspects of this field, including being the horticulturist for a parks department, managing a shade tree nursery teaching landscape design and horticulture at the University of the Fraser Valley, and managing her own landscape design/consulting business. She also enjoyed donating her time and expertise to benefit many community projects, including the Abbotsford Community Garden and the Sylvia Pincott Heritage Habitat Garden.
Nancy recently retired from most of her commitments but still enjoys teaching the Master Gardeners and sharing whatever knowledge she has with a wide variety of clubs and organizations.
Announcing for Spring 2021
The ARS — Next Generation Program: Rhododendron Through Your Lens Photo Competition
Three monetary awards are offered in the student category, and a variety of recognition for ARS members and other contestants. Up to five photos may be entered in any of these three categories:
– Your rhododendron lens: a close-up shot of a rhododendron flower, leaf or bud– Our rhododendron community: people working together with rhododendrons– Rhododendrons gone wild: photo of a rhododendron in nature
The Willamette Chapter meets at 7:00 p.m. online on the second Wednesday from September through November and January through April. In the past in December and May, we enjoyed potluck events, though in 2020-21 this is uncertain because of the pandemic.
In the future, non-members and guests are always welcome to attend Chapter meetings and special events.
