Aurora Senior Citizens Center
The Western New York Hosta Society will meet at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 16 at the Aurora Senior Citizens Center, corner of King St. and Oakwood, East Aurora. Doors open at 1:30 p.m.
Sally Cunningham, gardening expert, will speak on small trees and shrubs.Too many gardeners think that shrubs are the boring bushes shoved up against every suburban house in America. That’s because the same old shrubs are indeed chosen and used very poorly. Meet some amazing new woody ornamentals, and new cultivars of familiar ones, that will enhance your flower beds and complement your home landscape. And—in case you are getting older—shrubs in the right location are extremely low maintenance. Cunningham will show you plants that are trademarked Proven Winners as well as older but under-used beauties.
Cunningham is a Certified Nursery& Landscape Professional (CNLP), and author of Great Garden Companions. She directs education and consults at Lockwood’s Greenhouses in Hamburg, New York. She is also a co-founder and was Executive Director for the first four years of Buffalo’s own National Garden Festival. In 2014 Sally has joined AAA as garden-theme tour director for garden tours inside our region as well as to out-of-state and international destinations.
Members will begin to plan for their Hosta Show in June.
All gardening enthusiast welcome!!
