Forcing Bulbs for Winter Delight

On Saturday October 5, 2019

Event Time 10:00 am - 11:30 am

If you follow beloved author and passionate gardener Page Dickey on Instagram you are familiar with the pots of beautiful blooms that decorate Church House in the winter.  In this illustrated talk and demonstration Page will show us that a great variety of the bulbs we buy in the fall can be potted up in October and put somewhere cold (a cold frame, cellar steps, a refrigerator) for about 12 weeks, then brought out to light and sun and coaxed into bloom for the winter months. Less expensive and much more delightful than florist flowers to decorate your house! Page will show you how she has been forcing bulbs for years and she will share her favorite ones.

Page Dickey is a garden writer, lecturer and designer. She serves on the board of directors of the Garden Conservancy where she co-founded the Open Days program in 1995. She is also on the boards of Stonecrop Gardens and Hollister House Garden and was recently elected as an Honorary Member of The Garden Club of America.
