Heirloom Plants and Horticultural Pioneers Workshop
presented by Manitoba Master Gardener Association
Saturday, October 14, 2017 – 1 to 4pm
All Saint’s Church Auditorium
1500 Day St., Wpg., MB
If you have ever wondered what plants would have been available to Prairie Gardeners prior to World War 1 or if you are thinking of creating an “Heirloom Garden”, here are the answers. Where would we be without the breeding work of our pioneers such as Frank Skinner, Henry Marshall, Les Kerr, Cecil Patterson and Percy Wright? Discover their introductions (‘Thunderchild’ flowering crab, ‘Scarlet Trumpet’ honeysuckle, ‘Adelaide Hoodless’ rose and many more) and their stories.
Entrance fee at the door: $5.00
No fee for MMGA members
All are welcome!
