The Horticulture Study Group was formed to increase members' knowledge and enjoyment of growing and using plants in the landscape and home. Programs of the Horticulture Study Group are educational to give more in-depth knowledge of various horticulture topics and to have fun sharing our common interest in plants.

This year, members of the Horticulture Study Group will garden together at a container workshop, then at members' homes for pot-up parties. We’ll focus on chrysanthemums, succulents and conifers and how and why to grow them. Also on the schedule are visits with a young professional at the JC Raulston Arboretum and a seasoned plantsman at his nursery to catch up on what’s new and exciting in the horticultural world. Finally, we’ll do a mini-tour of member gardens in May. I hope you will join us! Follow the signup link to reserve your spot for our programs.
