Plants in History and Folklore
Join us as Senior Horticulturist, Scott takes us on a history filled storytelling trip to learn about how plants helped shape the stories and history of humans yesterday and today.
Be Fruitful and Multiply
You can cut, divide, graft, or grow them from seed. If you are the sort that enjoys sharing, or you have a plant you would like to have more of but don’t have the money to purchase, you may be able to create new plants at home. Join Horticulture Technician II, Houston for a talk exploring some of the ways you can propagate plants.
Gardening in Florida is not all dry land, some plants like to play in puddles. Come learn what to plant in those pesky spots that just won’t drain. Join us in exploring our ponds and marshes to discuss the plants that like to get their feet wet.
Passion for Pollinators
Butterflies, bees, bats and birds all depend on plants for their survival and we depend on those pollinators for our food. More and more they need our help with the increase in invasive plants and expansive turf grass yards, local pollinator wildlife has less available food and habitat in which to survive. Come Bee inspired with Horticulture Technician II, Cheo, and see how easy it is to help our little hard working nature friends by adding a few plants and some habitat to the garden.
