Fuchsia Tour in the Gardens of Joy Creek Nursery with Maurice Horn

10 a.m. - Joy Creek Nursery houses a large collection of hardy fuchsias, we grow more than 100 varieties and have many of those growing in our gardens. We have some specimens that are quite old, proving to be very hardy plants. This tour is designed to acquaint gardeners with the large variety of fuchsias that are available and to teach good cultural practices. Learn how to use them as not only specimens, but as landscape plants. The tour begins in the cool of the morning at 10 a.m. and will include instructions and best practices for planting and care. Free and open to the public, 20300 NW Watson Rd., Scappoose, Oregon.

Low Water Gardening with Maurice Horn

1 p.m. - The last many years have brought us record cold, record wet and a record hot, dry summer. At Joy Creek Nursery, we have been pleased how well the plants in our low-water and no-water borders have done despite the weather. This is testament to the plants themselves, of course, but also to the soil amendments and preparation that make these borders possible. During this two-hour workshop, Maurice will present in detail various methods for amending soils, appropriate plant choices and ways for combining plants to maintain long-term interest in the garden. There is a $10 cost for this class. Please pay the day of the class in our retail area (the barn). Everyone who attends will receive a coupon good for the same day only to 20% off of plants at the nursery, 20300 NW Watson Rd., Scappoose.
