Dreaming, Scheming & Theming with Color in the Garden
11am-12pm –  Learn how to create your own showstopping garden bursting with color from the maestro of Mohonk Mountain House’s annual display gardens, garden manager Andrew Koehn. Discover how thoughtful use of color – provided by annuals and bulbs – can create dramatic effect in the garden and extend your season of bloom. Fee: $10 non-members/$5 members

Winter Sowing Workshop

1:30pm-2:30pm – Discover a great seed starting alternative for gardeners who lack space or proper lighting for sowing seeds indoors! Winter Sowing is an increasingly popular method of starting hardy seedlings in mini-greenhouses made from recycled containers and placing them outdoors in winter to germinate. In this hands-on workshop you’ll learn which plants work best, and create your own mini-greenhouse to take home. With Michele Lawrensen, HVGA member, and New Windsor Garden Club founder. Fee: $10 non-members/$5 members

“As a gardener, winter for me is about three things: growing indoors, planning for next season and reading up on the nerdier side of gardening like design, history and science. We select classes that stem from those categories, and would be interesting to gardeners of varying expertise,” said Hudson Valley Garden Association Co-founder, Laura Wilson.

HVGA Winter Lecture Series continues on February 8th, 2015 at Marbletown Community Center in Stone Ridge with Three Season Vegetable Gardening at 10am and Tussie Mussie Workshop at 1pm.
