Learn about ornamental grasses

WSU Master Gardener Janet Oja will provide suggestions for designing a garden which incorporates bamboo and ornamental grasses, at noon Thursday, April 11, in the county commissioners meeting room of the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles.

The talk will highlight the beauty, texture and movement of ornamental grasses in a home landscape. Oja will describe different varieties of grasses and will discuss buying and planting ornamental grasses. She also will provide tips for their care, including how and when to cut them back.

The daughter of two botanists, Oja has gardened all her life. She retired from hospital nursing and moved to Sequim from Colorado in 2003. She became a master gardener in 2005 and agreed that summer to help in the grasses section of the Woodcock Garden and has been its primary caregiver since then.

This presentation is part of the Green Thumb Garden Tips education series, sponsored by the WSU Clallam County Master Gardeners on the second and fourth Thursday of every month in Port Angeles. Programs are designed to help home gardeners establish or improve their gardening practices. Speakers are local and regional individuals with expertise and experience in sustainable horticultural practices.

Attendees may bring a lunch. The presentations are free and open to the public.

For questions, call 360-565-2679.
