The World of Maples with Doug Justice
The Japanese maples commonly available to the gardening community, while lovely, poorly represent the astounding diversity and breathtaking beauty of this most useful group of small trees. Doug is an expert on maples. At this workshop he will wax poetic about the beauty and diversity of Japanese and related maples and then get practical and talk about growing them in the garden and containers. | Instructor: Doug Justice, Associate Director, UBC Botanical Garden | Saturday May 4th, 10am | FREE* | Register Online! | *$5 registration fee is required to hold your place. This will be refunded in full at the workshop in the form of a $5 coupon. This fee is non-refundable for those who register but who don't attend.
