Holiday Décor and Garden Gifts:
Looking for that thoughtful gift that reflects your love of gardening? Veteran Master Gardeners, Marilynn Elliott and Tanya Unruh will share some unique gifting ideas on December 14. Marilynn will demonstrate how to creatively transform ordinary gardening items into gifts, not all necessarily holiday themed, but something for year around use. She will show how ordinary stones, flower pots, and shovels can be made into pieces of yard art. Tanya will illustrate how to use materials from the garden for gifts, both during the holiday season and year-round. She will share ideas for gifting seeds, seedlings, bulbs, pressed or dried flowers, and garden tools and supplies.
Their presentation is part of the “Green Thumb Garden Tips” education series sponsored by the WSU Clallam County Master Gardeners. The Master Gardener Green Thumb Garden Tips education series continues on the second and fourth Thursday of each month. Presentations occur from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m.
Master Gardeners’ lecture series provide home gardeners with education on gardening topics relevant to planting and maintaining sustainable gardens and landscapes in Clallam County. The presentations are free and open to the public; however, donations are accepted to help cover copying costs for handouts. For questions, call 360-417-2279.
