Mark McDonough Lecture – Seedy Experiments @ Salt Lake City Library - Conference Room B
Oct 18 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The Wasatch Rock Garden Society is pleased to present the North American Rock Garden Society sponsored Speaker’s Tour lecturer Mark McDonough.

There is a world of fascinating plant species suitable for our gardens and only a small number are available from nurseries. Many time more can be had as seed. There are many approaches to growing plants from seed and the subject can appear daunting for the novice, but hearing an instructional talk on the subject is a great place to start. There is inspiration here for gardeners of all abilities. Mark will describe strategies he has used to grow and adapt new plants from seed using  a wide variety of techniques (even sowing in place, for instance) that are not widely known.

Nationally recognized as an expert in the genus Allium, Mark has earned the nickname “the Onion Man,” and is known for his hybridization not only of the ornamental onions but also of epimediums (commonly known as “fairy wings”). Mark’s gardening interests reach well beyond that of Allium, his horticultural passion include plants and gardens of all types, including alpine and rock gardening, hardy succulents, wildflowers and North American native flora, with particular emphasis on woodland gardening.

There will be an opportunity to ask lots of questions and discuss seed growing tehniques with Mark after the lecture. A list of seed sources will be distributed at the meeting because there’s a good chance you will be inspired to find seed of things your neighbors don’t grow and enjoy the feeling of accomplishment that comes from growing your own unique plants.

This lecture is open to the public and free of charge.
