7:00 pm Presentation: "Opening the Garden" presented by Joel Barczak of Blumen Gardens. Joel will share with us in March how he approaches "Opening the Garden after a long winter. Through his own studies of horticulture, internships, travels in the US and Europe and his own personal gardening experiences. Joel will walk us through gardening tasks and jobs of opening the garden with the goal of providing less maintenance throughout the growing season. Highlighting a variety of steps involving pruning, cutting back, weeding, cleaning of tools, planning and mulching, Joel will offer tips and ideas for all to apply as the weather changes.
Joel and his wife, Joan, created Blumen Gardens as a company that specialized in designing gardens and maintaining them. The company has evolved into an award-winning design company that does both landscape construction and garden maintenance. Blumen Garden's Gift & Garden Shop, is known for highlighting unusual and hard-to-find plants, trees and shrubs as well as home and garden decor and gifts.
