“Forcing Bulbs for Indoor Color”

Speaker: Catherine Horgan

It’s time to start thinking about bulbs! Yes, go ahead and order those new and exciting spring bulbs to plant in your gardens. But perhaps you’d also like more color indoors during the long winter months. If you want to go beyond just growing a holiday amaryllis, sign up for this presentation by Catherine Horgan, HPS member and Master Gardener of Mercer County, New Jersey. You’ll come away with the inspiration and know-how for filling your home with bright colors and pleasing scents this winter. You may even find yourself considering entering your creations in a flower show. As a blue-ribbon winner at the world-famous Philadelphia Flower Show, Catherine is the perfect person to guide you.

Catherine will discuss a variety of bulbs for forcing and how to use them to create beautiful displays for your home or for entering into a show. Learn where to buy bulbs, how to choose bulbs and pots, and how to plant, care for, and stake your plants. You’ll find yourself surrounded by fabulous blooms weeks before they appear in your garden. And if you still want to grow that holiday amaryllis, Catherine will show pictures of her blue-ribbon-winning amaryllises and share her expertise how best to grow them.


Catherine will also host a hands-on bulb forcing workshop this fall so you can put your knowledge into practice. Stay tuned for the date and details.
