Enclosed is a small description of Keith’s program and his background.
Please come as our guests.

You will learn Where these bulbs need to be planted so they have enough hours of sunshine to bloom next year. How Deep to plant the different types. How Close together to plant these and When to plant the various bulbs. But most importantly you will learn How and When to divide these as they multiply so that you can share them with others in the community! You will learn what species of bulbs are “Deer Candy” and which bulbs will be avoided by deer, rabbits, squirrels and pocket gophers. If you will bring blooms from your garden or old home sites he will identify them so you will know what bulbs the early settlers to this area were planting. Keith will bring bulbs, divide clumps and share various varieties of bulbs with the first 25 people to register for the program.
