Join aquatic plants horticulturist, Matt Hockaday, to learn how to grow and care for water lilies. Participants will re-pot tropical water lilies and marginals, groom and fertilize hardy water lilies and marginals, and maneuver through the Marlese Lowe Gourley Island Garden’s pools to place the pots of water lilies. Participants should bring plenty of water and dress for the weather (sun-protection clothing, sunscreen, a hat, and closed toe shoes). Space is limited. Tools and waders will be provided.
Work & Learn programs allow participants to roll up their sleeves for a hands-on lesson in the Gardens with Powell Gardens horticulture staff. Participants will go home with a new skill they can apply in their own gardens and occasionally with a cutting, cocktail, or other treat related to the day’s lesson.
