Douglas County Extension Master Gardeners are pleased to provide a free, one-day workshop on water gardening on Saturday, March 14. This workshop is the culmination of a generous donation by the former Lawrence Water Garden Society. The workshop will be given by Kelly Billing, an international aquatic plant specialist, water garden designer, consultant and author with 34 years’ experience in the water garden industry. Kelly compiled and currently maintains the regulated aquatic plant list in the U.S. and serves on the board of directors for the International Waterlily and Water Garden Society.
The workshop will be held in the Flory Building on the 4-H Fairgrounds, 2120 Harper St., Lawrence, KS from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. Check-in and refreshments will be 8:30 to 9, first session 9 to 11:30, lunch on your own, and second session 1 to 3:30. The morning session will focus on finding balance in water gardens. Kelly will share innovative approaches to achieve balance using natural plant materials while empowering the ecosystem. During the afternoon session, participants will discover creative options for establishing low-maintenance, big and small gardens with traditional aquatic plants, waterlilies, and lotus. Hands on practice dividing lotus will be available as well.
Registration is required for one or both sessions. The workshop is free but registration prior to the event is required as space is limited. To register, please sign up: https://tinyurl.com/ten5gf8
