RIDEAU LAKES HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY presents speaker Joanna Kowalczyk – The Art and Science of Pruning starting at 7:15pm at the Portland Community Hall. All Welcome! ($5.00 admission for non-members)
The Society provides free refreshments and door prizes, as well as information and advice on all your gardening needs.
Opening in 2000, with only one section of the debris-filled foundation of a collapsed dairy barn cleared and a few newly planted gardens, the Walls have gone on to create a destination that provides a unique gardening experience.
Finding the weather in our area to include fairly significant droughts and hot spells, the Walls decided to focus on long-blooming, drought tolerant, lower maintenance succulents and alpines. They seek rare and unusual seeds from around the world and not normally found in the retail trade, which they germinate, grow in their gardens and observe for a year before offering to their customers. They also offer workshops in hypertufa containers and decorative leaf art, which you can use as water features, birdbaths, planting containers and stepping stones.
Judy Wall trained in Horticulture at University of Guelph and is a Lanark County Master Gardener. She is the Past President of the Ottawa Valley Rock Garden and Horticultural Society, and a member of the North American and Ontario Rock Garden Societies.
