Herbs Anyone?

Don't forget the presentation on "Herb Gardening" this Wednesday night, March 3oth from 6 pm until 8 pm at the Parker Education Center. Patty Bailey of Patty's Plants -Natural and Organic Garden Supply in Milton, WI will be the speaker and the evening promises to be fun and educational. This is the third of our twelve monthly lectures this year and we hope to have another great crowd. "Moss Gardening" with Dale Sievert (January) and "Woody Plants" with Dave Wanninger (February) were very well-attended and well-received. Rotary Botanical Gardens Friends members can attend this lecture and any of the others in this series for free. All other attendees are asked for a nominal, $5 donation. No RSVP required. Future presentations include "Perennial Division" by Becky Nickel on April 20th (6 pm - 8 pm) and "Perennial Favorites" by Dr. Frank Greer on May 25th (6 pm - 8 pm). Check out the RBG website at for more information including details on the RPMGA hosted talks. Janice Peterson will be talking about "Heirlooms, Hybrids and History" on April 7th (7 pm -8 pm) so don't miss that one! Above is lemon grass (Cymbopogon citratus) and below is an excellent culinary garden sage (Salvia officinalis 'Berggarten')
