Perth Hort: Ornamental Grasses at St. Paul's United Church

Feb 13


Tim Dyer presents “Ornamental Grasses in the Northern Garden”.  Tim feels ornamental grasses are one of the most underutilized options for garden planting.  His presentation will illustrate the different colours, sizes and structures of ornamental grasses, as well as showing the ideal way to incorporate them into the garden.

Tim Dyer, owner and operator of Carp Garden Services, is a professional horticulturist with extensive experience in the propagation of trees, perennials and shrubs, as well as pruning, garden design, and all other areas of horticulture. Educated with a Business degree from the University of Wisconsin, Tim originates from the United Kingdom where he gained a strong background in horticulture. Subsequent years of evergreen tree propagation led to Tim owning and operating a 45-acre nursery near Carleton Place for 15 years. Here he had 2 million tree seedlings under propagation along with 60,000 shrubs and 40,000 herbaceous perennials. Tim has taken many horticultural courses through trade association programs and has taught pruning at the Governor General’s mansion, Rideau Hall. Tim has also taught various aspects of horticulture at Algonquin College in Ottawa.

Doors will open at 6:30 for social time; please use the D’Arcy Street side door to access our basement meeting room. If members wish to bring a plate of light refreshments to share that would be greatly appreciated.

All are welcome. Come to begin inspiration for your 2018 gardens. Renew your membership at $15 for the year or be a guest for $5.
