Master Gardener Horticulture series wraps up Oct. 15

1664

The Northwest Louisiana Master Gardeners will host the fourth, and final speaker in their MasterGardenLogo2014 Master Gardener Horticulture Series on October 15 from 10 a.m. to noon, at the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum, located at 3015 Greenwood Road in Shreveport.

The talk is free to the public and will feature Chris Wiesinger, president and owner of The Southern Bulb Company. Mr. Wiesinger started the Southern Bulb Company in 2004 with the aim of reintroducing flowers long out of vogue, committing himself exclusively to those that have ably asserted themselves against the particular cruelties of exceedingly hot weather for generations.

He will share his stories, his love for bulbs and his rules for hunting them, and how to use bulbs in the landscape in North Louisiana. He talks on “The Bulb Hunter: A Story of Seeking Out Botanical Treasures” at the Horticulture Series on October 15 from 10 a.m. to noon, at the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum.
