Master Gardeners talk of ‘digging in for spring’

WSU Clallam County Master Gardener Jan Danford will discuss how to select and plant healthy spring garden bulbs at noon Thursday, Oct. in the county commissioner’s meeting room at the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles.

This presentation is part of the “Green Thumb Garden Tips” education series sponsored by the WSU Clallam County Master Gardeners.

Danford will provide a brief review of the history and popularity of bulbs. She will explain the difference between bulbs, corms, rhizomes and tubers and some of the differences in planting each type.

She will share tips for selecting healthy bulbs and directions for planting for artistic effects, concluding with a demonstration on how to plant a pot in layers for a variety of blossoms over time. She will also explain how to care for the plants after they have bloomed.

Danford has 26 years of teaching experience and sponsored garden clubs in some of the overseas schools where she taught. She was recognized as the Master Gardener Intern of the Year in 2012 and named Clallam County Master Gardener of the Year in 2016. She chairs the Operating Committee at the Master Gardener Woodcock Demonstration Garden, coordinates the Boys and Girls Club Garden Club in Sequim and participates in the Youth Enrichment Program.
