The Inland Empire Gardeners

Newsletter / Calendar

The Inland Empire Gardeners meet the first Thursday of every month (except December or when the meeting night falls on a major holiday) at 6:30pm at CenterPlace, 2426 N Discovery Pl, Spokane Valley--across from the YMCA in Mirabeau Park. Club Meetings August  2017 Meeting
The next TIEG meeting is Thursday, September 7, 2017.

“Foliage First! Learn three easy steps that will help you turn your gardens from frumpy to fabulous!” Join garden designer and author Karen Chapman for a PowerPoint presentation and mini show. What happens to your yard when it’s not in flower? Does it suddenly become a sea of green? With the right foliage palette, your garden could shine with color and texture year-round. In Gardening with Foliage First, designer Karen Chapman offers more than 100 plant combinations that start with intriguing foliage schemes, then layer in flowers, berries, bark, and other finishing touches. The result? Tapestries of inspiration you can take directly into your garden, and designs that flourish in every season and climate. If you’re happy with what you have, you can stop here. Or you can add more elements that pick up the color echo of an existing design component. As mentioned on the book cover, this could be flowers, bark, berries, or even man-made pieces such as garden art. Karen’s hot-off-the-press book Fine Foliage will be available for purchase/signing after the talk.

“Anyone who thinks gardening begins in the spring and ends in the fall is missing the best part of the whole year, for gardening begins in January with the dream.” - Josephine Nuese
