Saturday, August 30, will be a red-letter day at Norway Gardens. It is the centerpiece day of a 3-day promotion -- Hydrangea Days -- at Norway Gardens. All three days of the weekend will honor lots of sale prices but the special events will take place on that Saturday, August 30. There will be two fantastic seminars that day plus two Make-It Take-It Workshops.
All About Hydrangeas
Seminar at 10 a.m. on Sat., Aug. 30
There are so many kinds of hydrangeas! Some of them have blooms that can be controlled by adjusting pH levels and others will stay white regardless of what you do to them. Some get huge while other stay relatively small. What are the basic kinds of hydrangeas and how do you care for them? What about water and fertilizer needs? When should they be pruned? How can you preserve the blooms? You will get answers to all your hydrangea questions at this 10 a.m. seminar.
Staff & Customer Picks of Annuals, Perennials, & Veggies
Seminar -- 1 p.m. on Sat., Aug. 30
What were your very favorite annuals, perennials, and/or vegetables thatyou grew this year? We offered so many new varieties as well as some tried-and-true favorites. Our staff members had favorites and want to share their ideas on this subject but we want to hear yours also! Our one request is that you share pictures of plants you bought from our store so we can be more knowledgeable about them when we share our findings.
Please email or mail us your list and/or your pictures (with variety names mentioned please). If you prefer, you may bring this information to us.
Deadline for entries is Wed., Aug. 27, 2014
Each person who enters a list and/or pictures of their favorites will receive a $10 gift certificate from Norway Gardens!
Fun with Dried Hydrangeas Make-It Take-It Workshop
Sat., Aug. 30 at 11:15 and 2:15
Create your choice of this beautiful hydrangea wreath or Christmas tree using hydrangeas that we grew and dried. While you are working, you will learn in greater detail the best ways to preserve the different varieties of hydrangeas.
We strongly suggest that you sign up in advance for this seminar and let us know which project you wish to make -- the wreath or the tree -- since our quantities are limited. When you sign up, you can specify your project choice so we can guarantee you will get to make the item you prefer.
Cost of either project: $29.99
Plan to have lunch at Uncle Don's Barbecue Truck. Uncle Don will be at Norway Gardens all day on Aug. 30 during our special day.
