Although I’m writing an article on deadline for Monday, I wanted to post some upcoming garden events in Oklahoma City. The first is the Oklahoma Gardening School, Saturday, March 1, 2008, sponsored by the Myriad Botanical Gardens. You can still sign up with a charge card by calling (405) 297-3995. To get through the automated phone system, press “0.” The cost is $40.00. I’ve made my reservation.
On Sunday, March 2, 2008, the Oklahoma Horticulture Society is having its annual meeting at the Oklahoma City Zoo in the Educational Building. The meeting starts at 1:00 p.m. In the same location, at 2:30 p.m., the Annual Oklahoma Horticultural Society Lecture Series presents author and lecturer, Cole Burrell. The cost for this is free. You can’t beat free.
On March 8, 2008, the Oklahoma Iris Society’s Pollen Dauber Seminar presents Dave Niswonger of Cape Girardeau, Missouri. He will speak from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Will Rogers Garden Exhibition Center, 3400 N.W. 36th Street in Oklahoma City. If you have any questions, you can contact Hugh Stout at (405)843-7130.
On Friday, March 14, 2008, at 6:30 p.m., the Central Oklahoma Hemerocallis Society, has invited John Shooter of Marietta Gardens to speak about his diploid daylily hybridization program at the Will Rogers Garden Center. There is a catered dinner for this meeting, and if you decide to attend, please contact Faye Ramsey prior to March 7, 2008, at (405) 603-2225. There is a cost for the dinner.
All right, I think that’s all I have for now. Happy Thursday, everyone.
