August 29, 2019 —
Our first stop is at Master Gardener, Judy Hargreaves’ half-acre garden, including over 160 different dahlia varieties, a rose garden, colorful containers, a small fruit orchard, temperature-controlled greenhouse, a variety of interesting grasses, trees and shrubs and a panoramic view of the Columbia River.
Next we visit the garden of Larry Smith. “A more whimsical garden you won’t find”, says Larry. Its focus is a wide variety of vegetables, annuals, perennials, and dahlias with a continuous bounty to be harvested over a long season. Larry participates in fairs and dahlia shows from May through September. We’ll learn about preparing flowers for display competitions.
Garden Fever, a NE Portland neighborhood nursery, features pollinator-friendly plants such as white lace flower, sedums, succulents, yarrow as well as edible plants and “jungle fever” plants such as fan palms. Garden Fever is “a place where gardeners, novice and expert, can find good plants, good tools, good dirt and helpful advice on sustainable garden practices.”
