October 17, 2021 1:00 p.m. in the Medill Room Cantigny Park
We are excited to offer you another gardening learning opportunity, our Fall Symposium. It will be held this Sunday, October 17, at1:00 p.m. in the Medill Room at Cantigny Park. Our guest speaker, Tammy Borden will be speaking on "Growing Hostas in Containers."
Our membership has indicated a growing interest to display our favorite host plants in pots. Tammy will show us that by growing hostas in containers, the hosta garden doesn't need to be limited by the size of your yard or imagination. She will explain how you can expand your design to patios, porches and other vertical and horizontal locations in the landscape. Along with learning about growing hostas in containers, she will explain soil selection, overwintering, design tips, plant combinations, and more.
Tammy has been gardening for over 30 years with a special place in her heart for hostas. Throughout her yard she has more than 600 hostas, both in the ground and in containers, plus dozens of companion plants.
Tammy serves as the Executive Vice President of the American Hosta Society (AHS), in addition to being the Newsletter Editor of the Green & Gold Hosta Society of Northeastern Wisconsin. Her garden was featured as a tour garden for the 2019 AHS Convention in Green Bay, WI. She also enjoys being part of her local Master Gardener program.
