January 10th – February

Seed Exchange Workshops

The Henry Foundation for Botanical Research, 801 Stony Lane, Gladwyn PA

Join us to clean, sort, and package seeds at our annual Seed Exchange. Even if you never intend to propagate plants from seeds yourself, you will be amazed at how much you learn about all things green at these workshops, sharing information, learning new varieties and species, finding out about plant sources/nurseries, and other valuable information. No previous experience is necessary, nor do you have to attend an entire session. Come when you can. This is a great way to meet fellow HPSers and to learn on the job. The Seed Exchange is one of our most important activities and we need lots of helpers to make this event a success. To volunteer, email  info@hanrdyplat.org.

Seed orders accepted through January 16.

All workshops will be held January 15th – February at The Henry Foundation for Botanical Research, 10:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.

Information about volunteering is in your Newsletter.

Joanne Walkovic Memorial Lecture

Lecture - Ed Bowen, "Opus Plants”

Scott Arboretum, Science Auditorium

Cosponsored with Scott Arboretum. Reception follows; free and open to the public.                 

Ed owns an unconventional nano-nursery in Southeastern New England with an increasingly  anachronistic horticultural approach-actively collecting, propagating, and growing plants.  The focus is on the under-cultivated and garden-worth, while specializing in unusal perennials.  He has a special interest in breeding and selecting plants from  diverse genera, such as Kniphofia, Sanguisorba, Hydrangea and Bergenia.

Ed has two young children and a dog about the property, so the nursery employs strictly organic pest controls, and strives as well to be peat free. The nursery is open by appointment only.
