Creating a Holiday Wreath

The Tulsa Garden Center is pleased to offer a wreath making class just in time for the holidays. What better way to greet your guests than a welcoming wreath expressing your joy in the holiday season. Dress up your entryway with a one-of-a-kind wreath that expresses your personality and creativity.
Mary Lou Havener, Landscaper and Designer, will facilitate this wreath making workshop. She has taught this class several times previously, and it’s always been very popular. Don’t delay in making your reservation.
All necessary materials will be provided.
Cost: $30 for TGC members; $35 for non-members; Pre-registration is required. Call 918-746-5125 to enroll or go to 'adult programs' at Tulsa Garden Center Education Offerings. The presentation will be in the auditorium of Tulsa Garden Center; 1421 So. Peoria Ave. Tulsa, Ok 74114.
Create a Holiday Rosemary Tree
Thursday, November 13, 9:30 AM or 6:30 PM
Come to the Tulsa Garden Center and create a live holiday decoration featuring a rosemary plant trimmed into a tree shape, which you can decorate to your individual taste. And as an added bonus, you can snip pieces to flavor your favorite holiday dishes. After the season your Rosemary tree can be planted outside and will give you many years of pleasure with its fragrance.
Karen Watkins, OSU Master Gardener and Linnaeus Gardener, will teach you how with a hands-on workshop. In addition to helping you create your holiday rosemary tree, Karen will be answering all your gardening questions so bring your gloves and let’s get our hands in the soil. Plant material, soil and container will be provided.
Cost is $25 for TGC members and $30 for non-members. Registration: same as for Holiday Wreath class, above.
Propagation 101 at the Linnaeus Garden Greenhouse
In September our newest Linnaeus class-in-training came down to watch how cuttings were started. We took many different kinds including hydrangea, Abelia, boxwood, cigar plant, begonias, Oleander, Basil, poinsettia and more (see picture, left).
We invite you to come visit the Linnaeus Greenhouse and watch the cuttings progress. We have a lot planned for next year, 2015!
It is very rewarding to make your own cuttings. To learn more and see how we did it in pictures, click here.
The Garden is Open
