Lovely Long-Lasting Lilies and Awesome Alliums

As spring turns to summer, a real garden treat awaits you as alliums and lilies unfold their myriad of colorful and often fragrant blossoms. We will look on overall samples of each genus and discuss best cultural practices to keep them blooming repeatedly for years. We will also include the most effective design uses for the garden and landscape.

Magical, Mystical Meadows with Bulbs

A multitude of different kinds of bulbs that both lend themselves to truly naturalizing (spreading by seed) as well as perennializing (multiplying in clumps and continuing to bloom). We will view slides and discuss informally each type of bulb and its general cultural requirements and best uses. We will talk about the best choices for a variety of sites and micro climates from sun to shade and wet to dry. We will take a holistic approach to achieving the ultimate low maintenance, free form, naturalized garden.

One Hundred Years of Daffodils and More

Back around 1900, Brent's grandfather, Charles Heath, ate a cantaloupe that caused him to discover daffodils in tidewater Virginia. Heath, a Yankee, was soon accepted by the local, southern farmers for his instrumental development of a daffodil flower industry, that would later help with cash flow during the depression. Brent's father and mother, 'Pappy George' and Katie Heath, developed a mail order business that once catalogued over 1500 cultivars of daffodils. Brent, who grew up in the business, fell in love with the flower and bought the business from his mother in 1972. He married Becky in 1979 and the rest is history.. hold on to your seats while this slide seminar tells the story!

Pest Resistant Bulbs

Come and learn about the kinds of flower bulbs that naturally resist the attacks of such critters as deer, rabbits, squirrels, voles and insects. Also learn how to help to make edible bulbs like lilies, tulips and crocus more pest resistant with an assortment of remedies, which make the bulbs or leaves taste or smell bad to foraging pests. Also learn how to create physical barriers to thwart the 'bulb monsters' and keep them at bay. Let's try some of these solutions to help us enjoy our flowers and make the world a happier, more beautiful place.

Sweet Smell of Success The Fragrant Flower Bulb Garden

Often, our earliest and best memories of ties to our past can be related to the fragrances of a grandparent's flower garden. Many wonderfully colorful and diverse types of flower bulbs have the added value of a mild to strong bouquet of smells. Through this slide seminar, you will learn to enhance your gardening efforts with a broad spectrum of fragrant flower bulbs in all seasons.

Tantalizing Tulips

Dubbed as the "parrots of the bulb world", tulips provide every color of the artist's palette except true blue. They are also the perfect spring flowers for the garden artist to mingle, blend, layer and contrast to compose that spectacular portrait of spring. Apparently as tasty as they are colorful, some critters and human gardeners find them a delectable treat. We will explore ways to thwart the critters and to enhance the dinner table of adventuress gardeners. We will share some cultural success stories that will help your tulip bulb re-bloom for years to come.
