Portage Library to host landscaping program May 2

The Portage Lake District Library will host Advanced Master Gardener Lynn Watson at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, May 2, for her presentation on "Landscaping Expansions: Getting the Most Out of Your Resident Plant Material."

This presentation will teach participants how to split shrubs and perennials and how to do twig tip propagation, rosebush multiplication, winter sowing, and evergreen recovery.

These methods will show gardeners how to increase the number of plants they have without spending money for new ones. Gardeners will learn how to extend landscaping, increase the size of their garden, and multiply plant material all from plants they already have.

Watson is the head gardener at Michigan Technological University. She is also the owner of Interiorscapes, a company devoted to professionally helping homes and offices welcome healthy green plants into their living and work environments.

Library programs are free and everyone is welcome. For more information, Please call the library at 482-4570 or visit
