Linnaeus Teaching Garden 9th Anniversary
Saturday, June 6th from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM
Linnaeus Teaching Garden, in Woodward Park, will celebrate its ninth anniversary and its’ being named an All American Selections Display Garden.
By becoming an All-America Selections Display Garden, the Linnaeus Garden will be presenting the very best plants that American horticulturists and nurseries have introduced. This unique garden has never been more beautiful, with thousands of lush plants, gorgeous hardscaping, fountains, and water features.
The first 500 visitors to the Garden will receive a free, one gallon “Fuschia Glow” hydrangea, a fifteen dollar value. This new hydrangea, is particularly suited to urban gardens since it only grows 2 to 3 and a half feet tall and wide. It will produce blooms throughout the season.
At 10:30 am, in the Tulsa Garden Center auditorium, Diane Blazek, Executive Director of All-America Selections/National Garden Bureau will present the program “Current Trends in Flower and Vegetable Breeding”.
Ms. Blazek will explain the All-America Selections trialing process and what it takes for a new variety to become an AAS Winner. She will show us the current trends happening in flower and vegetable breeding and explain what they means for the individual gardener.
Following the lecture, Linnaeus Garden volunteers will be selling varieties of hot new annuals, some of which will be made available for the first time in Oklahoma. Light refreshments and lots of free gardening advice and literature will be available through the day.
For more information call 918.746-5141.
The Garden is Open
Tues-Sat, 9am-4pm, March thru early Dec
Sundays 1-4pm, Mother's Day thru August
