The Comox Valley Horticultural Society welcomes speaker Margot Moser to the June 20 meeting.
Doors of the Florence Filberg Centre in Courtenay open at 6:45 and the presentation will begin at 7:30 p.m.
Margot’s interest in native plants began early as she explored the woods near her home in (then rural) Burnaby and has contributed to her preference for natural-looking landscapes.
Join us to learn more about native perennials, ferns and bulbs.
Margot was born with a trowel in her hand and has no intention of ever putting it down.
It wasn’t until she took Master Gardener courses 20 years ago that she realized she should have pursued a career in horticulture rather than teaching. The Master Gardener manual inspired Margot to design a perpetual garden journal called My Growing Gardenbook that sold over 8,000 copies across Canada and the USA in garden centres and gift shops.
CVHS is also excited about the upcoming Gardens in Bloom Tour to be held on June 18 and 19. Tickets for the event are $15 and available at Anderton Nursery, Art Knapp Plantland, and Blue Heron Books. The ticket allows entry into 10 unique and varied private gardens.
